Art in Public Spaces. Stencils on the Walls of Cluj



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.
