Tony Bannon on East Side Graffiti Memorializing Spain

Monday, December 3, 2012

Art made in places owned by others is a complex matter – on one hand illegal and on the other, sometimes heralded.

The late artists Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, were both reviled and applauded - threatened and rewarded - for their graffiti made in the streets of New York. These are images that were created today, made in Buffalo by anonymous artists together with the anonymous notes which accompanied them. The Burchfield Penney encourages the expression of ideas about this work.
