Punk's not dead

Not in the design world. What was punk rock in the music history, now is street art in design trends - rebellion. Unless... it's just another styling, among thousands of others. Let the descendants evaluate, as usual. Anyway, it went through the typical path, as a strange, incomprehensible and utterly useless to anyone pseudo art, to a powerful artistic and social mainstream. As far as I remember it was the same with Impressionism, Cubism, and every other -ism in thick volumes of art history. It all just begins this way. To be appreciated by a mass audience every fresh idea must simply go, in rather slow pace, through acceptance of modern art establishment, galleries and art critics until it possibly lends in museums. Now it's the time we witness some kind of a graffiti frenzy. Big art dealers sell it and buy it for a big money. It eventually became the voice of our generation. You can even buy yourself a lamp shade painted with graffiti nowadays. The authority of the mass media did work again, now we all love street art and we all want to have it.
