Street art 

In my art gallery I chose the theme of graffiti, also known as street art, and selected nine examples. Graffiti catches the eye in a way to make you stop and think, " How did they do that?! ". Most of  graffiti can be found  on the walls (inside and out), and on trains and subways.  There are different types and styles of graffiti as well. There are picture graffitis and lettering graffiti known as chrome. They tell many stories and also requires a lot of talent to produce such a great work of art. The colors are vibrant, the designs are outrages, and the dimension the artist adds to the art causing you to turn you head and just admire it.  Turning a flat surface into something that pops out at you is mind boggling.

This is an example of the lettering mostly used when tagging the walls or trains. It is very unique and sometimes not very legible unless you pick apart each letter.

The complicated lettering around the face attracts the attention because you are trying to make out what the letters are. The woman's face stands out as well against the dullness and bright green.
