Record Type: concept
graffiti (casual notations) (inscriptions, <documents by form>, ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Casual scribbles or informal drawings on walls or other surfaces. Examples include the following: The casual scribbles or pictographs on walls, stones, or other surfaces in ancient and medieval times, the marks incised or cut into the underside of ancient Greek vases and other ceramics, and modern humorous, satiric, obscene, or gang-related writings or drawings executed anonymously in public places. For more finished, elaborate works on modern walls and other surfaces, prefer "graffiti art." Graffiti is not the works created by "sgraffito," in that sgraffito is not casual, but is instead a formal decorative mark-making technique used on pottery, glass, or other surfaces.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst in de archeologie en kunstgeschiedenis naar vluchtige krabbels of pictogrammen op muren, stenen of andere oppervlakken. In de context van oude Griekse vaasschilderingen verwijst de term naar merktekens, doorgaans handelsmerken, die in de keramiek zijn gekerfd, meestal aan de onderkant van de voet van de vaas. Tegenwoordig is de term van toepassing op humoristische, satirische, obscene of bendegerelateerde geschriften of tekeningen die anoniem op openbare plaatsen worden aangebracht. 
German ..... In Archäologie und Kunstgeschichte bezieht es sich auf lockere Kritzeleien oder Bildzeichen auf Mauern, Steinen oder anderen Oberflächen. Im Kontext der antiken griechischen Vasenmalerei bezieht sich Graffito auf Marken, die in die Keramik eingedrückt oder eingeschnitten sind, gewöhnlich auf der Unterseite des Fußes der Vase; sie waren im Allgemeinen Handelsmarken. In jüngster Zeit wird der Begriff auf humorvolle, satirische, obszöne oder mit einer Gruppe in Beziehung stehende Schriftzüge oder Bilder angewandt, die anonym an öffentlichen Orten ausgeführt werden. Graffiti werden unterschieden von "Sgraffito", eine formale, ornamentale Verzierungstechnik, die auf Keramik, Glas und andern Oberflächen verwendet wird. 
Spanish ..... En arqueología, garabatos casuales o pictografías en murallas, piedras u otras superficies antiguas. En tiempos recientes es aplicado en escritos o dibujos humorísticos, satíricos u obscenos ejecutados anónimamente en espacios públicos.
