Visual Rhetoric of Street Art

Brian Haw

Aestheticism of functional media, playfulness and cheerfulness, manipulation of meaning, replication of symbols and images, stylistic experimentation, transfiguration as restitution and competitive collusion are some of the main aspects of visual rhetoric that street artists use to send their messages to the public. (Taken from: SYMBIOTIC POSTURES OF COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING AND STREET ART Rhetoric for Creativity (p117-118) -This is further discussed on the page entitled Intertextuality).
