According to Wikipedia, “The term street art or the more specific post-graffiti is used to distinguish contemporary public-space artwork from territorial graffiti, vandalism, and corporate art…Artists have challenged art by situating it in non-art contexts. ‘Street’ artists do not aspire to change the definition of an artwork, but rather to question the existing environment with its own language. They attempt to have their work communicate with everyday people about socially relevant themes in ways that are informed by esthetic values without being imprisoned by them.”

To make it into the ‘Street Art scene’ you need two things: Talent, along with a unique style and a short, sticky, peculiar name—think Bansky, Smear, WATTTS, Morley, Mr. Brainwash, BLU, Tejn, or Ces53 to name a few.

Today’s feature artist meets all of the above requisites: His name is Buff Diss and his street art is very much his own. Unlike many others, the Australian artist doesn’t spray paint or ink, but uses masking tape instead. Therefore his creations have been described as ‘non-destructive’.

Other aspect worth noting is the clever use of the context where his art lives. As he explains in the video above, he talks about how he has ‘conversations with architecture.’
