Street Art Attacks or rather Street Art in Period of Confinement

4 juin 2020

It is with great pride that I am sharing this with you today…

During our new online sequence, we have analyzed different types of street artworks. What most artworks have in common is that it’s a form of expression, whether we like it or not. Street art in particular likes to convey a message: be it a critique of our society, political or just esthetics, beautifying our environment.

After analyzing several artworks in video class, finding the message of each  street artwork after a careful description, the pupils were asked to choose a street painting, recreate it as a “live tableau” following the “TUSSEN KUNST & QUARANTAINEchallenge that started in March. Then, they had to describe the painting and give an interpretation as if they were the artist.

The “live tableau” serves two goals: having fun but also observing the details of the reproduced artwork, facilitating thus a better description and a heightened analysis. Being the artist explaining their art, gives the opportunity to leave the student behind and may act as a kind of liberation.

The results once more are outstanding and here is a sample of the “live tableau” and the artists’ presentation. There are many more, great beyond a doubt, that some students feel too shy to share with us.
