Fearless Graffiti Art Journal Spread
Hello! Here's my art journal spread inspired by the September challenge at More than Words. I am constantly inspired by the GRUNGY look of graffiti and the way the bright colours pop out in an asphalt and concrete landscape. But graffiti is not just a style, it's also a way to spread out a political message + a voice of rebellion, and that's the kind of graffiti I was particularly thinking of when I created this mixed media collage. I admire the FEARLESS work of graffiti artists, many of whom have had to work in circumstances where the authorities are very hostile towards street art. I've been happy to see in the past few years that many towns and cities have began to value street art in a totally new way! This spread is a part of a new junk journal I'm working on. I'll post more about it later! I'm also joining the challenges at: Sandee and Amelie's Steampunk: Anything Goes with Steampunk or Industrial, and Art Journal Journey: Colour In My World Thank you so much for your visit and comments, as always!
