When we hear about graffiti, we often picture vandalism and not luxury designer brands, but that’s starting to change. We’ve already talked about how graffiti has been moved from street corners to galleries, but it’s about to make another big shift: into the world of fashion and luxury. Thanks to brands like Gucci, Fendi, and others, graffiti is going from the streets to the shops and even more places than that. Pairing the rise of social media and street culture, graffiti is seeing dollar signs.
In major cities across America, luxury designers are commissioning murals to give their street corners a colorful edge while serving as a great social media feed material. Companies that at one point would have shied away from street art are now welcoming it, due to the immense traffic it can give the area, drawing photos and visitors to a spot that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.
The world of art is always shifting, from popularity to trends and from paintings to murals. Keep up with the ever-changing landscape of art and get some of your own on Zatista. Collect your own original art and bring some color to your life!
