Bazzj04, here's what I replied to the same question, on the flickr J.A. group, quite a while ago :
dannybedeoconnor dit : what's with the arrows Jeff? Love your pieces by the way. Thanks. Posté le 27 août 2007 à 9:33 (CEST). ( permalien | modifier | fermer | supprimer le sujet )
Jef Aerosol dit : Well, a lot has already been said about those arrows and i actually seldom reply to the question as I'd much rather leave people to their own interpretations and explanations ! However, here are some of the ideas that have already been expressed about my red arrows, by various people (some by myself !) :
- link between street signs and paintings - very urban, city sign, simple and neat - pointing at some important parts, details... - to emphasize a glaring look, dancing feet, smiles - adding some energy - attracting attention, directing the eye - easily recognizable, spottable, eye catching - second signature, logo, personal trademark, own sign - reference to Francis Bacon's red arrow - reference to Ernest Pignon Ernest who also once used an arrow, a long time ago - reference to Eros, cupidon's arrows, love... - red = blood / blood = life... - circulation, cycles, motion, stream, traffic - aesthetics, lines, geometrical sign vs human curves - reference to the mouse pointer on a computer screen - for the sake of repetition, leitmotiv, accumulation - make people wonder and question, mysterious, strange - make people feel puzzled, upset, sometimes irritated - graphic weapon , violent sign - fate : one way street / one way life / dead end - strong, powerful yet simple graphic element - a way of saying : this is only representation, not reality - did it once and it stuck - reference to Native Americans : bows & arrows - direction of time/ of space, past/future , here/there - rectangle + triangle = arrow - wink at the red dot : sold piece ! - no specific meaning, just looking good ! - personal reason
you can add your own version to the list ! I love reading new interpretations or feelings about my arrows...

Daniel Silk: In my opinion, Imbue, Ryca and Mobstr would be artists producing the freshest art in the past couple of years. Who would be your top 3?

paulagibbs: From someone who used to build websites, this site is not easy to navigate, and all those flashing ads at the top are annoying and rather low-end looking. I am guessing the only people who are going to visit are artists trying to sell their art.

toughart: I thought there was a issue with the website but this new Layout for this forum blows. Why are the new threads and post so hidden? This site is too difficult to navigate now. Bad update.

Daniel Silk: Yes, you are allowed to post links to your art items for sale on ebay, just please try to post in the correct ebay threads in the artists board. Thank you.

Daniel Silk: What Artists do you think are leading the Urban Art scene with new ideas? Rather than reproducing old images.

pgm: hey guys, quick question: I have a For Sale thread posted on June 26. Since then I updated the post with new and sold pieces and commented to bump it. But it is now stuck on page 11 of the Art for Sale thread (and noone sees it). Is "bumping turned off" somehow?
