Thanks to the use of digital cameras, tons of us have emerged during those last years and we are now hundreds of people taking pictures, wherever we find ourselves in the world, of pieces of urban art, most of which are totally ephemeral and destined to be seen only for a short period of time. And, by collecting and sharing those pictures, our hobby is not just a hobby. It’s also a significant, and from my point of view, essential record of the history of urban contemporary art.

L’arte assume Roma

A couple of months ago we received an e-mail with links to a two-part documentary by Gwen Stacy on street art in Rome, Italy. The short films came from David Capone of Dioniso Punk. It’s a good thing a few of the artists featured in the films speak English, because I would have been lost in translation from the Italian — except for the art, which speaks to the eye, not the ear. Spectacular. We’ve got great wall art in New York, and other places in the States, but the walls of Rome and its socio-political-artistic histories provide a different influence, as seen in these urban canvases. I asked David if he would elaborate a bit on the details of their work…

History…

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
