'The Way We See Things'
It is quite a challenge to tell if graffiti is a valuable art form of simply a devastation of property. Everything is in the eye of the beholder, as they say, and I tend to agree. To some, it may be art to others a display of vandalism. Therefore, I treated this graffiti with my own approach and tried to push it toward an acceptable level of aesthetics. However, it is not the train painting itself, more like a whole new dimension added by the visual treatment which I imposed.
The washed out low-contrast look made colours more acceptable to the eye, pushing this into the domain of the eighties. This treatment allowed the gentle pink take over and create an added value. In conjunction with the sun rays beaming from the top, all the way to the dark bottom, I have a good feeling that task was successfully achieved. So, whether it was to be considered to be art or not, the image itself does carry the value. Hope Gennaro agrees with me. :)
It is also about the mood. But it is so with many things in life. Our perception and judgement are vastly connected with the moment we've created in our minds when looking at something. The most beautiful and inspiring thing might look sad and boring if our mood is such and vice versa. If we are happy and in love, there cannot be a single thing around us which will make us feel dull. It is the way of acceptance and love. Who walks that path, becomes a true master of life.
