Guided tour of the streets of Brooklyns to discover Street-Art

Tag, Throw-Up & masterpieces.

Originally, graffiti are calligraphic drawings or inscriptions, painted or drawn in various ways on supports that are not intended for that purpose.

They are called Graffiti Writing / Tagging, composed of letters and names, a culture created in the United States and dating from the 1970s.

But Europe brought Street Art / Post-Graffiti 10 years later, representations that are not just names or letters. These are the achievements on furniture and the urban environment.


TAG stands for: signature, signature, brand, aka "Writer" who use them to gain a reputation, recognition and leave their mark in the urban environment.
It is a kind of logo usually very worked as Chinese or Arabic calligraphy.



THROW-UP: intermediate between the tag and the masterpiece, it is an improved signature, often 2 colors with a formatting, volume style "bubble". Larger to cover a medium surface and be more visible.

MASTERPIECES: large, with a high level of detail, they are realized when the "graffiti artist" has time, on legal spots (or accessible).



Leaving free rein to the creativity of the artist (whether alone or in a group / collective), they are now considered as true works of art, with their own styles and conveying messages.
