How to use graffiti in your home

I think graffiti is more than a simple way of spending your time when you are bored, trying to draw crazy things on the walls of deserted buildings. I think many of the people drawing these graffiti pictures are really talented and this is the way they show their art, just like Michelangelo or Picasso.

So I was wondering if anyone ever thought of using graffiti as a way to decorate their homes, to make them unique and to portrait their beliefs and tastes. Well, to my surprise, I found that there are some graffiti artists that use furniture as their support for the graffiti works. One of the web sites where you can admire and purchase their works is Urbankind.

You will find here many gorgeous pieces of furniture that are decorated with graffiti drawings and turned into post modernist works of art for your bedroom or living room. You can choose one of these interesting pieces, the one that represents you more or maybe fits your house, and bring a certain personal touch to your house. I suggest this combination only if you have a modern minimalist home with very few colours and white walls because otherwise it can be too much and the overall effect won’t be very good.

Any way, except for the graffiti painted furniture , you can also try to use graffiti on the wall directly, hiring a graffiti artist or maybe performing the painting yourself if you are pretty good at it. Get some inspiration from these pictures and see what you can do with a white wall, some nice graffiti sprays, a lot of talent and imagination.
