You'd probably seen this guy's outfit everywhere around you these days. Plain t-shirts, a jacket, a trouser, and a pair of nice sneakers. These items are a must in every teenager's clothing today. Maybe you're wearing something similar to him now. Notice the 'graffiti' letters on his trousers? Yes, it's an evidence on how graffiti has made an impact on today's fashion.
Because graffiti is spawned from other forms of street art and culture, such as breakdancing, DJ-ing, or hip-hop music, graffiti is sometimes brought along as street culture evolves. Many DJs and rappers wear clothes with graffiti on them. These kinds of clothes quickly became famous as the rappers gained fame. Teenagers wanted to have clothing similars to their favorite DJs and rappers, and designers saw this need as an opportunity to gain more profit on the market.Since then, people have created more and more street clothing with graffiti and other street insignias on them.
Clothing is only one part of our culture that graffiti has 'invaded'. More and more advertisement posters and billboards aimed at teenagers and young adults have graffiti on them. Graffiti is usually used to promote events such as break-dancing competitions, teenage basketball matches, or other events related to street culture. Have you seen ads with graffiti these days? If you haven't, you really need to get out more!
