If you are an artist, you can draw your pictures on paper, canvas, digital screen, plates, seashells, human skin or the street. Yes to street walls and buildings. Considering that a relatively small percentage of humanity regularly looks at art galleries, museums and books on painting; The street is the closest place to life for the artist to touch the souls.
I’ve been a member of street art groups for years. I find these groups on newly opened social media with the title of English Street Art.
I know that the pictures I see may disappear tomorrow. The beauties that have a breath like us and then turn into dreams.
I prepared the following video with 350 of the pictures I collected and uploaded it to my Youtube channel. You can watch it right below. (You can choose to subscribe for the next videos.)
Consider drawing each of them. Flowers bloomed, some running secretly, some made piecemeal for days, some with the support of the local administrations of the countries they are in, but mostly anonymously, with paint money paid out of pocket.
Some have signatures, some don’t. For the most part, those who do hide their names. Because they criticize, expose political mistakes, sometimes they want art to come before them.
It also gives them freedom.
Some become so famous that Banksy, for example, influences politics, art self-destructs at auctions.
