The Gray World of 2050: A Tale of Restricted Art and Self-Expression
My son, have you ever heard of something strange?
“Yes, tell me!” my son exclaimed with excitement.
“You know the new tree painting we did on the garage last week? Well, up until around the year 2050, it was not common for people to have paintings on their houses. Can you imagine that?”
“What? Were all the houses just gray?” my son asked in disbelief.
“Many of them were. People would usually paint their houses in one solid color, like blue or yellow, but it was rare to see more than one or two colors and almost never any pictures. Most apartment buildings, government buildings, and other structures were gray. Artists would sometimes go and paint on tunnels or grey municipal buildings, but their paintings would eventually be washed away by the government.”
“Was art forbidden?” my son asked, wide-eyed.
“Not exactly, but it had to be confined to specific buildings only. Some people believed that houses should not be painted with anything other than pale, solid colors. It was quite a dull and restrictive society.”
“Wow,” my son said, “that’s so boring.”
“Yes, my son, it was. But now, we have the freedom to express ourselves and add color and beauty to our surroundings. Now, let’s put on our jackets and go pick some fruit.”

Exploring the Significance of Street Art: Why it Matters:
As an artist, I know firsthand how important self-expression is. For me, street art is one of the most powerful mediums to accomplish that. Because street art is often created outside of traditional art institutions, it allows us as artists to bypass gatekeepers and create work that is not constrained by gallery or museum regulations.
But street art is so much more than just self-expression. It’s also a powerful tool for making social and political commentary. As street artists, we frequently use our art to bring attention to issues like injustice, inequality, and poverty. Street art has the power to spark change by bringing attention to these important issues.
Not only that, but street art can also play an important role in community-building. It can help revitalize neighborhoods and give locals a sense of pride and ownership. And as someone who’s lived in many different communities, I’ve seen firsthand how powerful this can be.
And lastly, street art is an important form of cultural expression. It reflects the values, beliefs, and aspirations of the communities in which it’s created. It can be used to celebrate and preserve cultural history, as well as advance inclusivity and diversity.
Street art is an incredibly powerful and important form of self-expression, social and political commentary, community-building, and cultural expression. It plays a vital role in shaping our cities and communities.
By Ukrainian artist Sasha Korban in Kiev, Ukraine. Sasha Korban: I created this mural a few days ago in Kyiv, and at that time nearby were battles for the liberation of Bucha and Irpin took place.
Street artists in and outside of Ukraine are using their art as a form of resistance against the Russian invasion and occupation. Through their powerful and emotive work, they are giving voice to the experiences and aspirations of those affected by the war. They are providing a powerful reminder that art can play an important role in the struggle for justice and human rights.
Many artists have contributed touching art this past year and you’ll see more if you keep checking through this collection.

The legacy of Miss. Tic: French Street Artist who used Art for Social Change
Miss. Tic 20.02.1956 — 22.05.2022. Miss. Tic was a French street artist who is known for her stencils of dark-haired women that can be found in the streets of Paris. Her work is often associated with poetry, as many of her stencils include text that is often thought-provoking and evocative. Miss. Tic began her career as a street artist in 1985, and has since become one of the most recognizable and respected figures in the French street art scene.
One of the things that sets Miss. Tic apart from other street artists is her use of stencils. She often used the same stencil repeatedly, but with subtle variations, to create a sense of continuity and familiarity in her work. This technique allows her to convey a powerful message with a minimal amount of visual clutter.
In addition to her street art, Miss. Tic is also known for her activism and her commitment to using art as a tool for social and political change. She has often used her art to comment on issues such as gender inequality, racism, and poverty.
Over the years, Miss. Tic has gained a devoted following of fans who appreciate her unique style, powerful messages, and the way she has helped to shape the landscape of street art in Paris. Her work can be seen in many of the most iconic locations in the city, and it continues to inspire and influence new generations of street artists. More art by Miss.
