Art in Graffiti

All About Graffiti

For some, Graffiti can be a work of art expressed in concrete. Zelda fans for instance will surely like this feature from the website Zelda informer.

“The wall-merging mechanic introduced in A Link Between Worlds is possibly my most favorite mechanic in any Zelda game, and it sure does look good in amiibo form. The details are just right; Graffiti Link is even wearing Ravio’s mysterious bracelet.”

Check out the photos here.

Not so happy about it

The website meantime pointed on the graffiti written in the wall of a set used by a TV series. Concrete  “Viewers able to read Arabic who caught last Sunday’s US airing of the award-winning television show Homeland may have noticed something bizarre about the graffiti lining the walls of the Syrian refugee camp: Splashed across the fictional set were messages in Arabic that read, “Homeland is racist,” “Homeland is a joke, and it didn’t make us laugh,” and more blatant criticisms of the program, which is now in its fifth season. “#blacklivesmatter,” too, appears on one brick wall in green paint. The words are the work of “The Arabian Street Artists,” a trio that Homeland itself hired to adorn the set with “realistic” street tags. The artists revealed the ruse — which they label a “hack” on the series — yesterday, explaining that they had conceived of it as an intervention to protest their discontentment with the show’s political messages.”

Related Concrete Contractor Services meantime published a story that tells about a local restaurant offering a thousand friend chicken pieces for anyone who can help catch Graffiti vandals in their outlet in New Orleans.

“A reward of 1,000 pieces of hot chicken out of the deep fryer at Melba’s Po-Boy could be yours if you can help the restaurant’s owner, Scott Wolfe Sr., find out who covered part of the building with graffiti.”
