“Although hundreds of thousands of individuals and groups promoting peace and justice now work across the world, the successes of the global peace network are rarely noticed.” (Wood) Additionally, the public who promote peace and justice are rarely noticed for their input to society. In the photograph titled, “Street Art with Graffiti in Copenhagen” by Shepard Fairey, follows the promotion of global peace and the protest against wars in the world. The image shows a painted mural, a former site of a youth culture center, on a seventy-foot-high wall with a dove in flight above the word "peace" and the figure "69". Also, at the bottom of the mural was graffiti painted over with "no peace" and "go home, Yankee hipster" by angry individuals, the youth culture center, who saw it as a propaganda provocation paid for by the city who tore down the youth culture center. Through Fairey’s photograph shows the importance of peace in the world. The photograph is hope that the public will follow with global peace. Fairey’s political mural is successful in conveying his
Steven Pinker, a psychologist, spoke regarding his book, "The Blank Slate". He claims that humans are not born blank slates and that there are some innate traits present. He used the study of two twins separated at birth and raised in two completely different environments as an example. When studied, the twins showed plenty of similarities such as dipping buttered toast in tea or wearing the same blue shirt with a distinct collar. This example and many others like theirs proved how nature overcame nurture. The traits that were instilled in these two individuals aided in shaping their lives. Nurture did play a role as well but it was not as influential in this case. The circumstances may have been the same but not as apparent if they were raised together.
True arts integration for any school, including those used in a workshop model require time and resources. After visiting the Wiley H. Bates School, which I learned about through my literature review, I was able to see the great possibility of integrating the arts fully and at the most minimal level. The arts-integration specialist at the Bates School created her position. She supports the staff and the arts integration in the school by writing grants. It occurred to me that in order to fully develop the arts in to each unit in a way that expounds thinking I may need to learn to write grants to gain funding.
“It all started with a Sharpie”. Sharpie was launched in 1964 by Sanford Ink Company and it became the first pen-style permanent marker. Sanford created a new ink that could write almost any surface such as glass, wood, metal, and paper. Sharpie only came in black, until the other colors added in 1979. Sharpies now come in a variety of style, such as retractable markers, paint markers, and markers for labeling CDs and DVDs. Advertisement is about Sharpie, but we found the Apple logo in the ad. It is so amazing to analysis why the designer use other company’s logo in the Sharpie print ad. This advertisement aims to make a relation between Sharpie as a drawing instrument, and Apple logo as a design of a famous designer for the largest tech company in the world.

Have you ever wondered who painted the “Be Someone” graffiti located in front of the city of Houston? Well I have, every time that I pass by on US-59 in fact. These two simple words make me contemplate about myself as regards to who I am. The message to me provides inspiration to make something out of myself, be proud of who I am as to where I grew up, and to be able to give back to those who still live right here in the streets of Houston.
Support: However, it becomes a crime when you put that "art" on someone else's property. “I have a message for the graffiti vandals out there - your freedom of expression ends where my property begins!” said BBC NEWS’ Peter Vallone
“No Trespassing.” It’s a message that we’ve all seen before, on street signs and on fences, but that most of us stopped considering as part of our daily lives. These signs just sort of blend into the background, no more noticeable than a crack in the sidewalk or a plain, solid-colored exterior wall. On the ordinary brown-painted brick backside of a bar in San Francisco’s Mission District, a bold, red No Trespassing sign is the center of a piece of thought-provoking street art. Below and to the right of the sign are some run-of-the-mill graffiti tags: pale yellow spray paint forming illegible words marking the territory of a gang or juvenile delinquent. On the left side of the wall is a bleak barred window. In 2010, renowned street artist Banksy, whose real identity is unknown, transformed a No Trespassing sign and typical graffiti into a powerful political message rife with symbolism reminding the audience of the historical struggle of the American Indian.
The illustration depicts a tattoo “artist” “disfiguring” the iconic “The Thinker” sculpture. To convey his stance, Lobbecke’s exaggerates the tattoo “artist’s” eyes and ears to make almost unhuman. These characteristics suggest to the audience that the “artist” is not of sound mind and positons to regard all people with tattoos in the same manner. To also further this generalised idea, Lobbecke’s has also drawn the “artist” in ill fitting and inappropriate clothing. Also, the use of irrelevant tribal style tattoos on the French sculpture subtly suggest to the audience that tattoos have no purposeful meaning and are culturally insensitive therefore the same can be said for their wearers. Lastly, Lobbecke’s uses the defacing of iconic sculpture to symbolise his idea of the downfall of society and its traditions. The pressure the reader into a feeling of fear and to agree Lobbecke’s with an urgent want for
This paper will go over the proposed argument being that the famous muralist, Diego Rivera, was teaching the public of his country of origin false information. His teachings start out with having the job to create methods in which the uneducated public will be able to have an extent of knowledge towards their country’s history. The method that Diego Rivera implemented towards his people was through the way of art. With having the authority to educate an illiterate crowd, Rivera was capable in reflecting whatever idea of his he wanted through his murals.
Is yard bombing art or vandalism? When I first saw the yard bombing images it reminded me of graffiti. Yard bombing and graffiti also share the similarities in that they both can appear to be vandalism. Last month in the metro there was an article complaining about this large graphic picture of rapper Drake that was on the side of a building he owned. He thought it was art while others thought it was graffiti and an eye sore.
