An “A” Student
As the world of street art continues to expand, more new and innovative forms of art are being displayed all around the world – from LA to Paris to New York City and more. When trying to figure out what piece of street art to create myself, it took me awhile before I dedicated myself to a certain image because there were so many ideas running through my head. I chose my primary form of street art to depict a cartoon detective with the word “create” at the bottom of his coat holding a magnifying glass that reveals an inkblot from the Rorschach test. Based on this image, I would call myself “Detective J.”
All-in-all, my street art does not portray a particularly deep or meaningful subject and is not extremely difficult to create, yet I feel that the message I want viewers to receive from this image is still an important one for people to remember. The Rorschach inkblot test is typically used for psychological purposes to determine a person’s personality characteristics and emotional functionality. Personally, I believe it is also a test of the imagination, a method of creation and interaction with each other and with an individual’s personal creative side. As a street artist, my goal is to promote these artistic characteristics – creation, imagination, and interaction – to the general public through my street art. At a time where everything feels rushed and many people are socially “impaired,” I want people to notice my artwork on the streets, stop, and take time to utilize the parts of their brain which have been hibernating for so long. The primary message that my artwork contains is that creativity is an integral part of our society that many people seem to be missing. Whereas before people used to experiment with different methods to solve a particular problem, our society has become utterly dependent on technology and what others tell them to do. I want people to get excited about creativity again – to dream and to think of something new to do, to not fall into the repetition of life.
Most of my street art will be large-scale images (a little less than life-size) because I want everyone to be able to see it whether they are nearby or far away. More likely than not, I will be print-making my images, cutting them out, and then “gluing” the images onto the city’s walls for people to see. To be more specific about my placement of the street art, I would locate either a busy or rundown street somewhere in LA because a busy street would attract a larger audience but a rundown street will attract an audience that probably needs a new sense of hope to be ignited within them, which I feel my artwork can bring to them if they just take the time to look at it and use their imagination.
