Sanctioned Graffiti Across the City

Material relating to a Transitional Cities project, titled 'Sanctioned Graffiti Across the City'. The project description reads, "While graffiti writing began as a youthful culture of resistance, as it has developed artists from graffiti backgrounds have made the transition to permissioned and commissioned large-scale productions that highlight their skill and talent. With graffiti art entrenched as a symbol of urbanity, murals are able to reflect the environment in which they are created and introduce many young people to the possibilities of the visual arts. Some graffiti artists have even been able to turn their passion into a full-time career, providing a positive example for many younger writers".
