Streetart: Chicagos Sidewalks as a Real-Life Alternative Monopoly Game (7 Pictures)

In Chicago hat der Streetartist „Bored“ die Straßen in einem fortlaufenden Projekt zu einen riesigen Real-Life Monopoly-Spiel umgestaltet. Überall in der Stadt wurden verschiedene Installationen dieser Art entdeckt, die Karten (Bild #3) wurden sogar täglich neu mit obskuren Mitteilungen versehen. Der Künstler selbst hat nur seinen Namen verraten, möchte jedoch anonym bleiben, weil man eigenen Aussagen zufolge mit der aktuell in Chicago existierenden Streetart-Szene nicht so besonders down sei und mal etwas anderes als Stencils und Posters machen wolle, etwas Dreidimensionales, zum Anfassen. Ist denen gelungen, ultra:

After a few desperate tweets and some emailing, I finally got in touch with the artist (or artists!) known as Bored. The person (or group) chooses to remain anonymous but expressed via email their dissatisfaction at the lack of quality street art around Chicago. Saying specifically that “the goal of this entire project has been to present something different than a stencil painted on the ground or a poster pasted to a wall. Something 3-dimensional that can be picked up, beaten down, kicked, yanked, grabbed, and broken. And if someone ever put forth the effort to remove it, like a weed it will always grow back. And if left alone it will evolve into something different.”

If you are just getting into the wonderful world of pasting, spraying or making the streets a more creative place, this list is a great place to start (short of Wall and Piece ). One of the best things about this genre is it’s diversity – you can decided what you find gimmicky/twee or meaningful and awe-inspiring. […]
