It's Art! T-Shirt by deviantARTGear It's Art! T-Shirt by deviantARTGear
It’s Art!
Graffiti writers can see what they do as an absolute art form, but many authority figures see it solely as vandalism. Within the community of graffiti artists and the contemporary art world, there’s a constant justification that it’s an art form, not a crime. $draweverywhere, creator of this design, is a graffiti artist himself and finds himself in the center of these conversations quite often. In an exaggerated drawing style, the artist in the graphic runs away from the crime-fighting cop, proclaiming that his artistic expression is ART! Who defines what art is and what it isn’t? What do you think?

Learn more about the artistic process behind the creation of It's Art!

Staff Favorite:
“An artist, in many ways, operates to provide society with an honest portrait of the world in which they live. When the art is deemed too dangerous, provocative, or potentially disruptive, there exists an authority to silence the artist and erase the work from the very society that it was meant for. This intersection of artist and authority is a continual battle; one during which many artists are left silent, but the art remains.” -- $Crosby2

I feel your pain :huggle: I waited for them to reprint this shirt in women's M size but they didn't and when I read that they're closing shop I even desperately bought Men's S size to remodel it to my figure with my sewing kit.
