Viral art does not have to be made by street artists or graffiti writers. That overlap is my main interest and focus because I’m coming to viral art as a fan of street art and I would love to see more street artists and graffiti writers treating the internet like a public space. It seems to me like a logical progression for street art and graffiti, and a way to keep it relevant in an increasingly digital world. But most online viral art / art for the Bored at Work Network isn’t made by people with a background in street art or graffiti. It’s just people doing work in an environment that seems natural to them in the same way that a street artist might see walls as a natural place to display their art. Here are just a few examples of artists doing viral art who have (to my knowledge) no background in graffiti or street art. These artists are only a very small sampling of a new generation of internet art that isn’t so inaccessible both in its concept and its distribution.
