    So for an EPQ topic I've chosen to investigate the correlation between modern art movements, manga and street art.

    I would be really grateful if anyone could offer me their opinions on the topic for example whether manga or street art can be considered genuine art, if street art has been accepted as a art movement largely due to the recent success of projects like Dismaland, what makes either movement art etc.

    Thank you so much!

    I love graffiti like nothing else and I'm getting into manga.
    Well for starters manga and street art are both used to visually represent cultures.
    Like Chicano street art was inspired by the Mex Rev and ermmm Banksy ini lol he does Impressionism which is social commentary with paint

    And erm you could look into the history of manga like the US Occupation of Japan inspiring comics started modern manga.

    Manga literally means "crazy pictures." The US Occ you'll have to look that up but it dealt with WW2.

    Manga also deals with street performing artists which came all the way from ancient Buddhist temples, which has its own Japanese word so erm kinda like the Chinese Cultural Revolution in the 20th century.

    Art was often used to depict the religious beliefs and/or current political climate and people had repressed voices so they used many times what was made illegal or taboo art and music to express their political angst.

    That's the best I can do I'd do the paper for you, it's a fun subject.

    This is the best EPQ title I've ever seen. :lol:
    I would consider street art as real art; have you seen the DETAIL in most of them?! :daydreaming:. If you've heard of brick lane then you'll know all about the amazing street art there.

    Ahh, yeah looking at their links to social commentary would be a really interesting avenue to explore :^_^: I'm more familar with manga than street art so any extra knowledge you could tell me about street art would be invaluable

    I've started looking into the history of it and manga in the 1900's was very much used to express themselves and political views, much like you said I've never heard of the links to street performance artists but that sounds so interesting! The amount of Japanese I've picked up just from researching it is ridiculous :laugh:
