For me the broadest definition of art is simply an act of creative expression. So street art is proper art, just the same as pictures in a posh gallery.

In fact possibly more so, as many of those pictures in the posh gallery will have been created as products to sell & don't exist for any other reason. Whether or not that stops something being art is probably another discussion!

Well it's just clickbait intended to draw someone in to claiming that it's merely mindless vandalism and thereby provoke an argument.


There we go, I've revealed the elephant in the room, let's all have a fight.

Take a stroll through Hackney Wick.

Some great street art and I believe the completely decorated pub is going to open again.

Art is in the eye of the beholder. I have a mathematical /science type brain. I can see the beauty in a Piet Mondrian or the chaos of a Jackson Pollock.
