Street Art Or Graffiti?
When it comes to topics such as graffiti in urban areas or cities this can often become a source of debate between communities and government or council organisations. Businesses or Council members may want to utilise a Blast Cleaning Service to remove any graffiti that has been created. However this sparks the question as to where to draw the line between graffiti and street art. With the rise in popularity in street art in recent years as well documented with acclaimed artist Banksy , many would argue double standards. This is because many councils and Governmental organisations whenever a Banksy piece is confirmed immediately moves to protect the artwork and yet when lesser known graffiti or street artists design a mural or small piece it is almost always immediately removed.
Another example of street art is in Glasgow city. Within recent years Glasgow city council worked with community groups to have a number of murals designed across the city centre. These murals have proved to be a hit with locals and tourists alike. Which again begs the question where to draw the line between art and vandalism. What can be concluded is that there may always be a divide between what is perceived to be art by some and vandalism by others. Regardless, services such as the Blast Cleaning Service will always be available to remove whatever cleaning task there is quickly and effectively.
