How Does Custom Graffiti Artwork Speak to You?

  • How Does Custom Graffiti Artwork Speak to You?

    Have you ever walked through the city to look at the graffiti painted across the brick walls in alleyways and on the sides of buildings? It’s a moving experience for an artist and art lovers. While some people don’t put much thought into tagging a building with spray paints, others use their creative flow to compose a symphony of colors to inspire the city. At The Rosella, we support those inspirational urban artists with commissioned collections of custom graffiti artwork. We want to showcase their creativity and uniqueness to the public in ways that foster a passion for art and bring new appreciation to graffiti as an art form.

    Did you know that cave painting is considered the earliest form of graffiti? They told stories in illustrations that often told of the hardships and events of the lives of the artists. That was well over 30,000 years ago. And while artists (usually) don’t paint with berries and crude sticks anymore, there’s still the driving desire to tell stories for communities through artwork. That’s the kind of passion and uniqueness we hope to highlight and encourage at The Rosella.

    Is Graffiti an Art Form?

    There have been decades of debate on whether graffiti is art or vandalism. Truth be told, it can be both. Intention matters. The graffiti artworks that we commission have purpose and creative intention, making them an innate art form because that’s what the artist intended. Every bold swipe of color, every word, and image has an evocative message.

    As an art form, graffiti often draws inspiration from some of the world’s most well-known contemporary art movements. Influences like surrealism, abstract expressionism, and pop art are often prevalent in artists’ unique graffiti stylings.

    The Rosella aims to help artists and art lovers alike through appreciation and encouragement. We want to inspire and motivate. For more information about what we do, who we are, and our collections of custom graffiti artwork, give us a call at (425) 470-6145.

The Rosella Encourages You to Show Passion and Support of Local Artists and Urban Artworks

  • The Rosella Encourages You to Show Passion and Support of Local Artists and Urban Artworks

    At The Rosella, one of our aims is to help local artists find the support and appreciation they deserve from a community of art lovers and peers. Through engagement and support of local artists and their artworks, we believe that you can better encourage and foster a love and passion for art in your city. Sometimes it may feel like a love for art and creativity is dying out, especially with the events of the world around us, but coming together in support of your city’s artists is the first step towards reigniting the creative flame in others.

    Social media is a powerful tool that could forward appreciation for local artists and urban artworks. Through simple likes, upvotes, shares, and commentary of your favorite artworks, you can encourage others to take an interest. Then those people will share their favorites, and so on in a chain of passion and creativity.

    It may not always be possible to see urban artworks in person, so virtual support is the next best way to show support and appreciation for local creatives. Is your Facebook feed overwhelmed with bad news? Does Instagram make you sad with commercial ads? Improve what you and others see with art that makes you feel positive. Share images, links, and stories about The Rosella’s collections that have sparked good vibes within yourself.

    What Can You Expect from the Rosella Gallery?

    Our gallery is a unique experience unlike any that you’ve seen in other art galleries anywhere. In some cases, we’ve commissioned top-tiered artists to recreate their urban artworks, while others have created artworks specifically for exclusive display in The Rosella.

    What can you expect? Emotions! Colors! Provocative imagery showcases an artist’s talents, creative flow, and imagination. We tell stories and share artist experiences through their artworks and exhibitions!

    Enticed? Give us a call at (425) 470-6145 to learn about our upcoming events and exhibitions. We are proud to show our support of local artists!
