Graffiti

Graffiti has been around for millions of years. Romans wrote on the walls of buildings they conquered and cave men drew illustrations on cave walls, although graffiti has not been in the United States quite that long. Graffiti first became big in New York and spread through other states. It started as tagging or writing your name on a street sign. Then gangs used graffiti as a way to mark territory. Not long after, graffiti became a form of art. It inspired young artists to come out and use this new art as a form of self expression. Whatever mood they were feeling, they were able to make something beautiful. Lee Quinones, one of many graffiti artists, changed the grimy place near Brooklyn bridge into an incredible gallery of art.
Graffiti started moving from streets to subways and quickly became competitive. Graffiti artists had to compete for space and it inevitably offended property owners. This, and the misunderstanding that all graffiti represented gang activity, led to community pressure on politicians. But still graffiti artists strive to improve their art which is constantly changing.
Now its moving from streets and trains to galleries on canvas, paper and other materials.

 

Luis Mariano SCER

Born 1993 in Stuttgart, Germany where he lived until 2008. Since, he lives in Mendoza, Argentine.

Painter‘s statement:
I discovered Graffiti in Germany at the age of 12.
When walking through the streets in Berlin, every little tag, throw ups, murals would attract my attention. I was fascinated. How did they do it ? why did they do it ? And how would they get to such dangerous and often high places ?

Quickly, I felt very attracted to this “Underground Art world” of ‘adrenalin and courage‘. Soon, with a school friend, I made my first step into it.

When I left Germany to Argentine, in 2008, graffiti was already in my blood. There I discovered the real meaning of graffiti and what I wanted to make out of it. I knew already that it was going to be my life and as this painting Art was starting to move from walls to Galleries, it became my passion.

With my two friends we created a ‘CREW’ and names: Neor, Scer1 and Gene1, and started painting, often at sun set, the walls of the city.
