Stencil Graffiti in Evanston

A stencil graffiti found on Church Street in Evanston, IL across from the public library.  Maybe it came from a wily Whole Foods employee on break from the night shift.

    I believe there is a bridge between graffiti and fine art. The bridge lays in tolerant social consciousness and a shared perception of beauty among diverse cultural contexts. I curated a landscape show and the winner was (Jeff Snell) an Asian landscape done graffiti style, very energetic and powerful. A new way of expressing. The painters parents were Asian art deals and he grew up in the urban neighborhood with graffiti. A unique vision of California landscape.

      Graffiti is art without permission or desire for monetary compensation, with the exception of gang-related communications. It is essentially a question of who owns public space and the individuals deciding to assert themselves in public. I like it when there is color and a design to break up the city landscape. Past a point, how many miles of brick walls, cement and concrete can a person look at in their life time and not be tired of it?
