The Contemporary History of Graffiti


Although the recognition of graffiti art dates back to the mid-20th century, its origins can be traced back to prehistoric times. The iconic cave paintings of Lascaux demonstrate that pictorial practice is ancestral.

Beyond the paintings that adorned the caves, early humans used graffiti to mark their passage in isolated locations, alerting different tribes to potential dangers. The artistic movement reached its peak in the 1970s and 1980s when many artists such as Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Andy Warhol showcased their creations to the public.

The first urban art graffiti emerged in the second half of the 20th century in the United States. Anonymous artists began painting their pseudonyms on walls and, more broadly, throughout public spaces. It was in the late 1960s, a period marked by protests against the Vietnam War and racial demands, that graffiti paintings multiplied.

From there, street art was born as an essential means of political and protest expression, often criticized by the general population. The waves of repression targeting this movement only served to strengthen and democratize it beyond American borders.


 

Banksy et le graffiti art

 
Banksy, one of the world's most famous graffiti artists, has radically changed the perception of graffiti art. By remaining anonymous, this British street artist has managed to attract international attention to his provocative and often politically charged work. One of his most well-known pieces, 'Girl with Balloon,' is a perfect example of how Banksy uses graffiti to provoke thought and dialogue. The image of a young girl letting go of a heart-shaped red balloon has become a powerful symbol of loss and hope.

Each Banksy’s artwork, whether painted on a wall in a bustling London street or unexpectedly appearing in a small town, continues to demonstrate the impact and importance of graffiti art. Banksy constantly challenges conventions, reminding the world that graffiti is not just an act of vandalism but a legitimate form of art capable of transforming the streets into open-air galleries.

In France, prominent artists like Blek le Rat and Mesnager began painting their works in public spaces. Gradually, graffiti and street art spread worldwide, and new urban expressions emerged, such as stencils and stickers. The violence and hatred directed towards graffiti artists pushed some to paint on canvases, contributing to the inclusion of street art in reputable exhibitions. Today, the artistic value of graffiti is widely recognized, and many artists continue to perpetuate the pop and street culture on canvas.

 

How is Graffiti Art Practiced?


The iconic expression of graffiti is often realized through aerosol spray cans, some containing acrylic paints. Valérian Lenud exemplifies this trend by depicting large whimsical characters from pop culture using stencils and spray paint.

Similarly, graffiti paintings are generally created using mixed techniques. For example, artist Graffmat combines spray paint with acrylic to give their works a velvety appearance. Others, like Kikayou, employ a variety of artistic techniques to portray their universe. They may use stencils, spray paint, or collages.

Graffiti appears as a pictorial technique focused on intention rather than method. It is a personal initiative centered around delivering a message that should be seen by as many people as possible. The practice of this art form on canvas follows the same logic. Artists express themselves using all available pictorial means but on a different medium.
