Streetlife Vienna #1
The voice of the public, put on the walls, exaggerated without any borders and limits, these are graﬃtis. In Vienna there are many places where you find them. Some legal, some wildly sprayed but not legal using public spaces beyond the provided “Graﬃti-Areas”. I don’t see it as my duty to judge if a graﬃti is legal by means of being on a legal wall, or what the message is. For me it’s a documentation of great graﬃtis in Vienna. This is the first book about Vienna’s Streetlife, since graﬃtis are permanently renewed and overpainted, this series of books might never end. Most photographs where taken along the “Donaukanal” - easy found at Underground station “Schwedenplatz”
Rudolf Strutz Idea & Photos
Graﬃti-faces mostly look very funny. Here you’ll find a selection of “hot” faces directly from the Vienna Streetlife scene.
A graďŹƒti tells a story, thus transports a message. These disclosures comprise sometimes out of single words, word groups, phrases or sentences; occasionally they are released as signs, drawings or symbols.
Hit & run - within seconds a stencil is on the wall, thus delivering the message. The diversion of the expressions is very wide, here youâ€™ll find some â€œstraight forwardâ€? stencils, the more controversial subjects I have added a separate chapter.
Some of the statements found on the walls are taking up subjects rather unmannerly, unmerciful even vicious. There are no borders, no limits, religion, politics, every day life - freedom of speech - and - freedom of thought - these are displayed here.
