"The Language of the Wall" by BrassaiJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 31 Jul 2013
The desire to draw in public, carve your name into a wall or a park bench goes back pretty far. Lets just say forever, I mean, cave paintings? However, we do always find it interesting to see what kind of public/street art was going on throughout history. Brassai, a Hungarian sculptor, photographer and filmmaker who is best known for his nighttime photographs in Paris during the early 20th century spent three decades documenting wall carvings and markings which he titled "The Language of the Wall." Fascinating!
