1. markings, as initials, slogans, or drawings, written, spray-painted, or sketched on a sidewalk, wall of a building or public restroom, or the like.
2. drawings, messages, etc, often obscene, scribbled on the walls of public lavatories, advertising posters, etc.What a negative connotation is carried with the word graffiti. The word often brings the mind the crude and indiscernible cat-scratch defacement one often finds rudely strewn across the newest and most beautiful building in town initialed by some drug-using street rat.
Often associated with gangs, graffiti has developed a powerfully negative name for itself. Shame, shame, shame. But have you ever seen a poster with a clever picture or statement in your city that got your thinking faculties and brain juices working? This friend is called not graffiti but street art.
If you are a fan of this form of fine contemporary art you will most likely find yourself at one point wondering if you could somehow manage to strip one such poster from a wall. To no avail! It simply tore and I found in my hands a curled piece of a piece. Often these works are not even posters but are stencilled with spray paint onto concrete and what is more the artist leaves behind no business card, Facebook name, or contact information once so ever often remaining anonymous and infamous. Which begs the question, how then can one get his hands on a fresh print that one can proudly display above one's couch in one's flat, den, or man cave? Good question!
May I direct your attention to one of these contemporary street artists in particular? He simply goes by the name T.Wat. What do you need to know about his work? Existing in a world of contemporary art that lacks real significance and speaks nothing to the heart of its viewers stands a man of many mediums. As a skilled vocalist is able to exhibit a range in voice from exceedingly high to dauntingly low T. Wat's works range from sarcastic phrases in poster medium plastered to ancient brick buildings by means of wheat paste to beloved cartoon characters engaging in questionable activities that beg words and questions from their viewer's mouths to a simple black and white image of one of London's officers plopped down on a toilet. Has this wet your pallet?
If you're interested in owning an intriguing piece stunning contemporary art to place in your home, a topic of conversation or just an icebreaker for new guests in your flat may I suggest T. Wat. More than just a conversation piece, this fine contemporary art is a definite wise investment for any investors of contemporary art in London.
