Description

This Honours thesis explores the paradoxical nature of street and graffiti art in its aims to critique and resist the very commodification that it relies on to provide an income for its artists. The thesis examines the work of Banksey, JR and Zevs in order to get a sense of the range of work in this genre and the way in which these artists deal with complex questions around globalisation in a neoliberal context through their work.
