Cre-ate [kree-eyt] Verb (used with object), Cre-at-ed, Cre-at-ing. 1 - to cause to come into being, as something unique that would not naturally evolve or that is not made by ordinary process. 2 - to evolve from one's own thought or imagination, as a work of art or an invention. I chose the word “create” because of the meaning of the word. The word itself (create) has a meaning that a lot of artists, or i should say all artists no matter what age can relate to. Artists have came across this word hundredths of time or at least thought about it when feeling motivated or creating a new piece of art. In graffiti, a lot of it is part of being original and coming up with new style. In this case, in my piece i chose a “wild-style” form of graffiti. I chose this type of style because i really had to create my own style. It's 100% original, coming straight from the artist's imagination. I want my piece to give anyone foreign to graffiti a taste of what its like and what its about. I want to show them that graffiti is not a crime but art. A way of self expression and relief. Not only is graffiti a type of art but I believe that it can also be seen as a movement. Society has a negative view on graffiti and people need to understand and be educated on its worldwide benefits.
