One of blogs segments is called Road Games, the first game
was Slug Bug, and every year since I’ve post a game. Today is Memorial Day, May
26, 2014, and the beginning of summer travel on the roads.
#Road Games are fun; let’s play a new game. I love art, and
a great way to see non-traditional art is by visiting street art, better known
as graffiti.Do not be fooled, a few
known artist are graffitist, i.e. #Banksy and Choe.
The messages the artist projects vary, social activism,
humor, to personal emotions. The art messages are superb, and have a way of
telling the establishment to go f _ _k off through art sprayed on a wall.
Let’s play, the mission is to travel out of your comfort
zone, and visit the places you wished you visited, but are to lazy to drive
there.Pack up your car with your buds,
tunes, and co-pilots. Drive the car to your local downtown or Capitol Hill;
cruise the alleys and back streets. Look closely at the sprayed messages, and
use your Google to find the answers about the artists.
Graffiti – Street Art
Look for art that’s painted on walls, for art that
incorporates metal and wires from the building. Take a selfie, and post it for
your friends to see.You’ll be a hit
when they ask you where is that place, “that’s cool.”
Denver’s Road Game
Go find graffitist David Choe’s art, a total of eight pieces
spread throughout Denver.The David Choe
image is a self-portrait paying homage to another artist Zona. The other
messages represent political activism, fighting back and having an index finger
waved at you. Hey, “No parking anytime, and that includes graphitized
vehicles,” lol.The May 2014, blog
entries are images of #DavidChoe 's work.
Be cool, be wise, and have fun … happy summer everyone.
