Do you know what is urban art? Do you? XD
Urban art is a style of art that relates to cities and city life often done by artists who live in or have a passion for city life. In that way urban art combines street art and graffiti and is often used to summarize all visual art form.
Urban art is at the heart of WebUrbanist – the drawings, images, photos and sculptures that inspire us in part because they are open to the public. From installation artworks to street graffiti and everything in between
I know that some of you have heard of band called Gorillaz. The band Gorillaz uses an urban art style to promote their band. The band members are animated in a graffiti styles.
The notion of ‘Urban Art’ developed from street art which is primarily concerned with graffiti culture. Urban art represents a broader cross section of artists that as well as covering traditional street artists working in formal gallery spaces also covers artists using more traditional media but with a subject matter that deals with contemporary urban culture and political issues. I’ve already wrote something about graffiti art so just take a look in the “Art I Like” section. =)

Now, I don’t know if you heard about urban art sculptures but here are some photos you might find interesting. There was an art show few months ago. Name of the art show was “Boy Soldiers” by fine artist Schoony and the Graffik London gallery opened it’s doors for the public. With a lot of better known street and graffiti artists on the guest list, the opening at the Blackall Studios was really successful! I saw this photos and they amazed me. I think that message is clear!! Just look at the boys face, body, colors…
