Grafitti

Graffiti.

 

Two extremely distant visual languages are mixed in this image. Graffiti on one side, and post-conceptual art, that appropriates the history of art to generate new discourses, on the other side. They are seen in this image as strangely intertwined without approaching a resolution of the paradox and tension that the image contains.

 

The photograph shown is the visual documentation of graffiti made by the artist in a Spanish train. The sale price of the work is the exact amount that the artist was required to pay by law in order to avoid jail after being arrested for its execution.
