The contemporary history of graffiti

Although the artistic recognition of graffiti dates back to the middle of the 20th century, its origins can be traced back to prehistoric times. The iconic cave paintings in the Lascaux caves demonstrate that the practice of painting is ancient.
Beyond the paintings that lined the caves, early man used graffiti to mark his passage through an isolated area to alert different tribes to potential dangers.  The artistic movement reached its peak in the 1970s and 1980s when many artists such as Keith Haring, Basquiat and Andy Warhol exhibited their creations to the general public.  


The first urban graffiti artists emerged in the second half of the 20th century in the United States. Anonymous artists began to paint their pseudonyms on walls and more widely in the public space. It was at the end of the 1960s, a period marked by protests against the Vietnam War and racial demands, that graffiti paintings multiplied*.
Street art was born from this, a vector of expression that was essentially political and protesting, widely decried by the population.  The waves of repression that targeted this movement only strengthened it and democratised it beyond American borders.

 

In France, great artists began to paint their works in public spaces, such as Blek le Rat or Mesnager.  Little by little, street art spread throughout the world, and new urban modes of expression appeared, such as stencils and stickers.  The violence and hatred against graffiti artists led some artists to paint on canvas, which contributed to the entry of street art into renowned exhibitions. Today, the artistic scope of graffiti is widely approved and many artists perpetuate pop and street culture on canvas.

How is graffiti art done?

The emblematic expression of graffiti is the aerosol can, some of which are composed of acrylic paints. Valérian Lenud illustrates this trend by representing the great fantasy characters of pop culture simply equipped with stencils and his spray paint.

Similarly, graffiti paintings are usually painted using mixed media.
For example, the artist Graffmat does not hesitate to combine spray paint with acrylic to give his works a muted look. Others, such as Kikayou, use a variety of artistic techniques to depict their world. The latter may well

Graffiti appears as a pictorial technique focused on intention rather than method.
It is a personal initiative, centred on the delivery of a message that must be seen by as many people as possible. The practice of this art on canvas follows this logic.
Using all the pictorial means at their disposal, the artists express themselves in the same way, but on a different medium.
