Graffiti may also express underlying social and political messages and a whole genre of artistic expression is based upon spray paint graffiti styles. Within hip hop culture, graffiti have evolved alongside hip hop music, b-boying, and other elements.Unrelated to hip-hop graffiti,gangs use their own form of graffiti to mark territory or to serve as an indicator of gang-related activities.
One of the rare street artist/muralist based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He is introducing depths of graffiti, a modern art form the nation is yet aware of. Deciphering thoughts into art, he has developed a unique style which is equally captivating on walls as it is on canvas.
With the surfacing urban culture based in Dhaka, Behave and his vibrant set of colors seemingly became noticeable in the outskirts and metastasized far beyond north of the city since early 2014. With his pseudo name being a message itself; graffiti writing ranging from classic throwies to wild styles and mid-Gothic calligraphic hand styles were passionately his initial signatures.
Over past years the certain twist of tastes and variations of his genre in graffiti were reshaping in a an awe standing manner. Behave with his multiple taste of color mediums-Synthetic canned paints to water based plastic paints, and even charcoal at times- “well anything to leave a mark” he says; gave birth to both beauty and message via art.
Behave has showed his overall excellencies in classic stickered commercializing, graffiti writing, and his soul base; street art. Over a handful of collaborated exhibitions, and media appearances he has initiated firm grip over preaching urban art nation wide.
Behave believes graffiti is his voice, his medium to be heard among the mass crowd, believes graffiti is his only medium to quench the thirst of creation.
“To generate ideas not relative and reincarnate things no-one else believes in – like peace and justice and freedom is why I behave, why I color.” he says.
Behave wants to take his expedition to the next level at his near future. He wants to create an authentic urban scenario around the whole DHAKA city. Behave believes that, he can create positivity on walls which might make people think about things they may never think about. He expects nothing but positive support from his surroundings and friends in Hip Hop. And to that, we say ‘Carry on bro, we got your back!’
