Create a way for members of the public to nominate the walls of their businesses, homes and institutions to have graffiti / urban art painted on it.
A moderated website could allow general public to nominate their addresses and walls to the administrator who then
* verifies the request as authentic
* posts a picture of the wall (without address details) on the site
Then a community of graffiti artists (registered with the site) can nominate to ‘adopt’ that wall and paint it within 14 days. If the wall remains blank it is passed to the next artist.
General public that value and appreciate urban art are empowered to connect to the artists in their community and support public artwork.
Graffiti artists receive more exposure and are able to experiment publicly and legally.
General public are not permitted to ‘request’ designs unless they are paying or commissioning artists. If artists ‘adopt’ a wall they have complete creative freedom (unless it’s openly offensive).
This may encourage public to commission artworks if they have preference to what’s put on their wall.
Everything is moderated by the site administrator to ensure any problems can be resolved quickly to avoid negative publicity.
This idea came from visiting Condor Tower Carpark.
