Current design trends have recently been gravitating towards having the more artsy looks. Keeping this trend in mind, we are now seeing the emergence of graffiti in the home. In past generations graffiti was viewed as a form of vandalism, but in current years it has emerged as its own art form. Many famous contemporary artists such as Banksy, Shepard Fairey, and Sour Grapes 13 started their artistic careers as graffiti artists. My knowledge about this movement was enhanced after watching the documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop: A Banksy Film. I have provided a link to the trailer for the film and recommend it if you would like to learn about the dangers and secrets these artists go through all because of their passion for their art.
Graffiti artists tend to be recognized as contemporary artists when they are sponsored by reputable companies or showcased in museums. The Dallas Contemporary Museum has featured 2 of the 3 artists mentioned above allowing them to spread the word that graffiti should no longer be viewed as a form of vandalism when displayed in a tasteful manner and appropriate venue.
How is graffiti emerging in interior design?
Art trends tend to reflect life as we know it and graffiti is now starting to be seen on anything and everything in the home. Ranging from wall space, wood furniture, and upholstered furniture you can find graffiti used as a way to make a personal statement in your home.

Interior design has emerged as a fusion of new and old ideas. Incorporating both art and design in rooms will enhance your vision on what a room can become. If you are someone who likes color in the room, this look may be for you! Color is a great way to psychologically create a better mood and self-esteem in your everyday life! Although different colors have various effects on your emotions and energy, adding color will generally lift your mood.
