Creative Vandalism: Urban Street Art in Czech Republic

December 22nd, 2014

Considered to be an act of vandalism, defacement and even a despicable crime, Graffiti is a controversial type of art that, as a matter of fact, has already managed to win over numerous artists and spectators and has amassed a large army of minions and fans. While authorities and communities hotly debate about pros and cons of this urban branch of creative activity, being divided into two camps, its followers produce splendid and impressive artworks, which enlighten city streets and breathe new life into old, abandoned wastelands. Of course, not every piece is a masterpiece or even worth attention. There are lots of naïve, simple-minded and unremarkable examples of the modern variation of the ancient rock painting. However, there is still much to admire.

What is more, this kind of art is closely linked to social and political life as well as current events, so that there are cases when creatives employ this direction in order to vividly and graphically express their opinions and convey feelings and emotions. Depending on the country the street art can vary, and today we are going to take a look at urban art in the Czech Republic.
