my art is about the side effects of smoking. The man is smoking and destroying his future.
written by Justin12563
I like public art because I like seeing art all around me. I like drawing in pencil because it's easier to draw with.
written by Andrew15852
My favorite genre is public art because I like to walk around the city and look at art. My favorite is coloring in colored pencil or crayon because they help me with detailed work.
