Street Art

Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. But when you paint something on the street, it is no longer your own – it becomes public property.  Erasmus students took a look at the street art scene in Zagreb. They talked with ordinary people on the street and with some of the street artists. One of the most prominent places where street art is shown is the wall in Branimirova street, also known as the Street Art Museum. It was started in 2010, and since then different artists have collaborated in making the wall what it is today – a place where creativity and rebellion create art. It’s not just art, or graffiti, it’s also a statement – sometimes it’s rebelling against current political situation, and sometimes it’s just an artist’s expression of reality, a message they’re trying to send.
