Street art is a
form of artwork that is displayed in a community on its surrounding buildings,
streets, and other publicly viewed surfaces.
The work has moved from the beginnings of graffiti and vandalism to new
modes where artists work to bring messages, or just simple beauty, to an
audience. Street art has become more
accepted by the general public, likely due to its artistic recognition and the
high-profile status of Banksy and other artists and for example Bristol city
council are creating a network of legal walls where artists can create their
pieces legally. To plan and
visualize a final design artists may use a planning kit.
Students need to design and develop an
exciting and eye-catching tin for a planning kit for street art supplies and
equipment. Students should create a
fictitious brand targeting the young and arty sector.
The kit should contain the following
supplies and equipment:
2 x aerosol cans – dimensions: diameter 52mm, height 105mm
2 x paint cans - dimensions: diameter 57mm, volume either
100 or 125ml
-Samples of these cans are available on request.
The graphic designs should marry across the
metal components and the storage pack.
Students should remember they are designing the outer pack more than
just putting some metal components in an outer pack of another material.
The shelf size of the pack should be no larger than 22cm x 35cm x 14cm.
