Grapples With Societal Norms
Created by St. Louis-based graffiti artist David Ruggeri, Graffiti Wall is a collection of four NFTs inspired by societal conflict. Available for purchase on OpenSea beginning January 10, each piece in the collection grapples with the need for a society to make and enforce rules that improve civilization and the need for people to express themselves and challenge authority. As can be seen frequently in graffiti culture, artists are inspired to create artwork that is available for the masses to view, but it’s the government's job to not only prevent public property from being painted on, but to assure the messages and images being painted are appropriate. Each of the four NFTs are available as 1 of 1 on https://opensea.io/collection/no-graffiti. In addition, buyers can choose to have each piece framed and shipped (U.S. lower 48 only) for no additional cost. Buyers will also receive a signed empty can of spray paint used by the artist to create his paintings.
