Recently in art, Year 6 has been investigating and exploring street art and graffiti. We discovered that graffiti – a form of careless vandalism – is often misunderstood to be a form of street art, despite the large differences.
In comparison to graffiti, street art involves a significant amount of depth and thought, commonly used to portray messages relevant to issues that may have arisen. This type of art is often regarded as graffiti, however we have learnt that the differences are very significant.
The images below display this obvious distincion.
From this information we learnt and inspiration from various “street art” images, our class was inspired to create our own skateboards, portraying personal and global messages that are thought to be significant. Since my passion for photography and the recently learnt skill of “expressing oneself” has greatly increased, I decided to create my skateboard about photography and the importance of self expression.
I have not completed the design, however aim to paint the reflection, sky and glaze the skateboard this afternoon. The message I have portrayed through this is a quote, which is written in gold on the side – life is like a camera, focus on what’s important and you will capture it perfectly.
This was a very enjoyable topic, however, extremely time consuming!
