I love art.
Taste in art is personal
Having said that, there is a lot of art out there that does not mean a lot to me. Logical, since there is so much art and since being touched by it or not is personal.
I’m talking about art that I find rather elitist and distant. Or art that is too rational, abstract and constructed for my taste. Or would-be art. Wanna-be art. Bla bla art. Hot air. Or art that is fine, but just not my taste.
I love street art
One type of art that I really, really like is street art. In my book that includes: murals, graffiti, urban knitting, sculptures outside /on the streets, and more.
What appeals to me is that it is informal, accessible for everybody and it does not take itself too seriously. I love that it brightens the cityscape. That it breaks the everyday scenery…. It often has a young vibe, it’s colorful and it can make a stroll to the supermarket a fun activity.
