Art is Free by aimeelikestotakepics Art is Free by aimeelikestotakepics
For a class project some classmates and I had to go downtown and discover art. We titled our project "Art is Free" because of this graffiti we found on a wall. I overlaid the graffiti over another image of a street musician I took earlier in the day.

Sorry I had to put a watermark on this, but I'm going to use this as the main piece in my college portfolio, so it's really important to keep it protected. I tried to put it in a place where it would be effective but hopefully not too distracting. Thanks!

You should SELL prints of this ... just as an extra detail, giving the slogan "Art is free" another meaning still.

I really like the piece. Art is free. We ought to remember than. =)

that's very cool! and very simple... but deep, ya know?
i really love how the "art is free" isn't written in any fancy way, almost like a fast scribble, like any true writer would write. i know you have nothing to do with that... but it's interesting nonetheless.

If it's an overlay, I'd say it's more photo-manipulation than photography ;)

I wouldn't say so, it's just a small piece, something that could easily be done in a darkroom. I consulted a few people on the matter and they say it should be under photography, I've submitted stuff that was more manipulated than this before XD

Then I'd put it under photography > darkroom, but that's just me :p

I guess I can see how it coulda been done in the darkroom... two frames in the enlarger, I s';pose.

Ya, but significantly changing the picture, either through creating or inserting new forms, really qualifies the picture as "photomanipulation"... and I would say this is qualified ;)
