Weekly Inspiration: People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish… but that’s only if it’s done properly.

Dorota Pankowska’s recent project titled "Pro Bono Promo" utilizes a brand’s main product to create their logo.

Dorota hails from Brampton the local paper The Brampton Guardian covered her project here: http://www.bramptonguardian.com/whatson-story/4153238-painting-with-mustard-and-toothpaste-a-new-street-art-series/

Here’s another shot of one of the works in the street environment:

Pro Bono Promo provides an interesting comment on the intersection of art and advertising.

The quote above is one of Banksy’s, he also had this to say about the subject:

“The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists.. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.”

Pankowska is an exception to Banksy’s rule and you can discover more pieces in the series on her website here: http://www.dorithegiant.com/2013/10/pro-bono-promo-street-art-series.html and follow her on twitter @DORItheGIANT.

I’m inspired.
