We see them every day on monuments, building facades, train carriages, or road signs: tags, graffiti, murals...are they a form of art or vandalism?
Street Art is the term used to define those forms of art that are popular in public places and that attract a huge audience, much more than what one would find in a traditional art gallery.
This phenomenon has been often labelled as vandalism, because the media used to create it are public means of transportation and buildings.
And yet there’s a difference: the boundary between art and vandalism, between beauty and lawlessness has been drawn several times by famous artists like Haring, Banksy and many others.
Their drawings are works of art that reflect modern issues of society, send out messages, or encourage us to reconsider our views.
Street art has an expressive value which we ought not to generalise and condemn. The same writers make a distinction between those who create graffiti as an art form and those who paint walls simply to vent out their anger. And in fact, often the architectural beauties of a city and the facades of houses, valuable assets that should be preserved, are covered with drawings of little emotional value and obscenities of various kinds. Sometimes they are sprayed with substances that even damage their structural integrity.
By adopting technologically innovative systems, it is now easier to fix the damage caused by spray paint and varnish without damaging the underlying walls. Even the most delicate surfaces can thus be cleaned. Graffiti can be removed from any surface, including marble, stone, bricks, cement and plaster.
Rhino srl vehicles are designed and patented to remove any kind of dirt from any surface and to restore the original beauty of the buildings.
