Modern Grafitti by CT

ct graffiti

Italian artist, CT, serves up a fresh twist on “modern” graffiti. It’s interesting to note that CT is from Torino, a town with a rich history in lettering. Societa Nebiolo, a type foundry known for its influential typefaces by their star designer, Aldo Novarese, was located here for many years.

Within the context of graffiti, these forms are certainly interesting, but their purpose (to advertise the writer him/herself) isn’t anything new or exciting.

Not a huge fan of graffiti. This is quite pretty and I particularly love he’s choice of colors.

Dont bring high art and design into graffiti.. Maybe I dont even have to mention it, because eventually the person doing this will get bored and do something else like a work at an ad agency.

Are we going to gentrify grafitti now because the fine art world has run out of ideas?

Be a bit more open minded, its good to merge two different art forms together!

And the art world will never run out of ideas!!
