I love New York City. What really impressed me (apart from many other things) were this great street art pictures on the wall. I took a few pictures of them. Take a look.

Street Art

Street art is – as the name already says – an art made on streets. I love this kind of art and I’m a little disappointed about myself that I didn’t take enough pictures. But anyway.
It is not really clear when this kind of art started. In the 60s some “artists” started to spray on walls and subways their “tags”. That was their name in an artistic way. These kind of tags started to get bigger, more colorful and more freaky. That was probably the point when Graffiti was born. This characterized even the music. I think the hype was in the 80s. Did you know that the word graffiti comes from the Italian graffiare meaning to scratch? I find this really interesting and totally related to me. I’m italian and I love New York, especially the street art and graffiti. Makes sense right. 😉
If you are interested in knowing more about the history you can read this book: “The History of American Graffiti”. It’s written by Roger Gastman and Caleb Neelon.

Nice movie about Graffiti and (lots of) Rap is Wild Style.

 

Here are some of the New York Street Arts

I absolutely love street art, so seeing what other people find while traveling is so very special to me. Thanks so much for sharing the street heart beat in one of my favorite cities.

    Thank you so much. New York is full of great art pieces. I think you have to spend many days just to become a little overview. There are too many great street arts around!!

    Thank you Marta. Yes I used to like street art but then I totally forget about that. I just started to open my eyes again in New York. You really could not pass by.

NYC has some of the best street art. It’s a shame they closed Five Pointz. That was a great place to see tons of art in the city.
