Graffiti; the Rebel’s Medium

Unsanctioned street art, also known as graffiti, is frequently associated with banned ideologies and rebellious, anti-authoritarian subcultures.

During the 1970s and 1980s, the anarcho-punk band Crass waged a graffiti campaign in the London Underground to spread its anti-war and anti-consumerist message.

Graffiti also played a significant role in Amsterdam’s emerging punk scene.

Making a Statement With Street Art

Street art is primarily used for entertainment and to showcase the artist's talent. No matter where you are in the world, you are sure to see examples of it. However, it is becoming increasingly popular as a way of drawing attention to important issues.

One of the methods which could be employed is by changing the letters on a billboard, which would give the advertisement an entirely different meaning. This practice should not be encouraged as it is actually classed as criminal damage, and is therefore illegal. However, those who are passionate about a particular cause may see the risk of getting caught as a small price to pay.
