An occasional splash of color so enlivens the drab grays of any city neighborhood! Take a look around, there’s a pulsating universe of colors created by street artists for everyone to enjoy.
Street art delightfully impacts with color where architecture never imagined it to be. It has the interpretive vision to reface, re-energize, and reimagine a building. Artists versed in art history and the rhythms of the street are collaborating with warm colors, geometric patterns, grid inspired lines and abstraction.
“The environment and its colors are perceived, and the brain processes and judges what it perceives on an objective and subjective basis. Psychological influence, communication, information, and effects on the psyche are aspects of our perceptual judgment processes. Hence, the goals of color design in an architectural space are not relegated to decoration alone.” writes Frank H Mahnke, in his book Color, Environment and Human Response
Color is an international language understood by all, and street artists use it to perfection to express themselves with. Check out some 1AM murals that beautify our hometown of San Francisco. For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
