Printed Tees UK: To the untrained eye, graffitis might seem like just and act of vandalism – and don’t get me wrong, some of them are – but if you look close enough, you’ll see artists who are creating the visual language of a subculture.
Graffiti might not be accepted as an academic art form, but to me those criticised pieces are much more impressive than some of the “works of art” that are being sold for millions nowadays.
You might have read about the Barnett Newman painting that sold for £30 million. It’s a blue canvas with a white line – £30 million! I think that some of the graffiti that can be seen on the streets require more technique and references than a white line. But what do I know?
Street art has been closely linked to movements that eventually became mainstream like punk and hip hop. Berlin and New York City are often named as some of the capitals of graffiti, but the UK is no stranger to it either; in fact, Banksy one of the most famous street artists in the world is British. I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t admire his satirical work and impressive stencilling.
Not surprisingly, T-shirts are also part of the graffiti movement, so in order to celebrate its rich history, we’ve put together a list of amazing, street art inspired tees.
