Graffiti, street art, & other urban art

Article Tools

Graffiti, street art, and other urban art are offered the same protections as other artwork, and are therefore subject to copyright and/or trademark protection by the originating artist.

Any content featuring underlying artwork subject to copyright, should be avoided in commercial use content and pictured only in context of a larger story, setting, or event in editorial use content.

We cannot accept content containing graffiti as backdrop for model released shoots, nor can we accept property releases for structures inclusive of graffiti, without a release from the graffiti artist as well.
