I have three images of graffiti doors to contribute to Norm’s Thursday Doors challenge this week.
The first image – Melbourne Jan 2014 – is a good example of “high” street art. Melbourne, Australia is a great location for scouting graffiti as an art form in various laneways. The graphic quality; the bright, neon colours; and the sophistication of this composition all contribute to the pleasure of the visual experience. The image is dated January, 2014, as graffiti in its nature is temporal, and this door may be completely different today.
Message delivered is at the opposite end of the graffiti spectrum. Hard to discern any form of art on this Toronto garage door – just a written message. It seemed to be effective though – there were no cars parked in front of the door.
Blues and greens lies somewhere in the middle of the spectrum. Someone has painted this facade with some swirling blues and greens, and a few tags have been applied in response. Definitely on the grungy side.
