Art in Public Spaces. Stencils on the Walls of Cluj

Sabina ANDRON


Abstract:

Our public spaces are filled with images and visual messages, some belonging to the “above the line” logic (like advertisements or political posters) while other belong to a “below the line” concept of visual communication, like street art, stencilling or graffiti. These forms of expression entered our urban life and are influencing the behaviour and even reflect a public consciousness. Sabina Andron draws a map of the stencils in Cluj and, in the same time, uses this to tap into the aesthetics of this new urban art.
