Muralism as an Art Automatic translate
Imagine art. I am sure that everyone in their head immediately flashed beautiful paintings painted in watercolor or oil. Someone came up with the paintings of Monet, another - Aivazovsky.
But, you see, few people could think of murals.
Who and why dresses at home in street dresses?
Mural art is a modern street art. Having declared themselves at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, murals rapidly began to decorate multi-storey buildings all over the world, and our country was no exception. Cloths for this type of art are the external walls of buildings, and the technical means that the artists stock up to create their works are aerosol cans with different nozzles, acrylic paints dry quickly, and brushes for performing fine details of the picture.
Unlike his "brother" in street art - graffiti - murals are an official and legal form of art, because the local government gives permission to artists to perform work on the walls of houses in the city. To obtain this permission, it is enough to submit a letter of appeal to the City Council, as well as a sketch of the drawing and your portfolio - and the artist has already documented the existence of the future “canvas”.
It is also important to have a patron who will provide funds for the creative process.
The expression “Meet by clothes” can be applied to the walls of houses: until the hand of the master touched them and created an “outfit”, the houses will remain invisible and the streets will not acquire artistic charm.
What do street artists paint?
The genre palette of murals is diverse. It reflects the original style of the author, his feelings and emotions, hidden between the elements of the drawings.
Some artists use animalism in their works, that is, the themes of the animal world. By writing with the brush and colors of animals to the rhythm of the streets, the artist tries to show the population how closely people coexist with nature. With the help of murals, you can even popularize sports.
However, murals can fulfill not only an aesthetic function, but also have an allegorical meaning, depict important urgent problems that the author wants to draw the attention of society to. This may be a problem of global warming, political events, etc. Reproducing the political and social themes in their images, muralists remind the public that problems need to be addressed. This is a “cry of the soul”, for which the artist’s workshop was used and a good place was chosen — the large walls of the buildings were in full view of the population so that they would not forget about social problems.
