Record Type: concept
graffiti art (<visual works by location or context>, visual works (works), ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: A broad genre of visual communication placed on surfaces, usually in urban environments; term reserved for works that are considered art or artistic, rather than casual notations or scribbles, which are called "graffiti." Examples of graffiti art include works expressed in a signature form, in either a stylized monogram or as large colorful murals. Examples may include works that are not in graphic media or are not created directly on the surface, but created and then applied to the surface. Graffiti art has occasionally been created as paintings on moveable supports. Contemporary graffiti art emerged in the mid-1970s in New York City, rendered in spray paint on subway train cars and walls. Originally graffiti art was illegal, applied to unauthorized public space or property by individuals or groups, though now it may also appear as commissioned work.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Een breed genre van visuele communicatie, vaak in een persoonlijke stijl, in een gestileerd monogram, of als grote kleurrijke muurschilderingen. Moderne graffitikunst was midden jaren 70 van de 20ste eeuw voor het eerst te zien in New York, toen er met spuitverf werd geschilderd op metrotreinstellen en muren. Graffitikunst is ook soms gemaakt in de vorm van schilderingen op verplaatsbare dragers. Oorspronkelijk was graffitikunst illegaal en werd zonder toestemming in de openbare ruimte of op eigendommen aangebracht door personen of groepen, maar tegenwoordig bestaat het ook als opdrachtwerk.
