Street art 1/2

***** A fellow blogger just said this is not graffiti. Its street art. - noted *****



Walking along the streets of bristol some weeks ago and i came across this. There were about 5 buildings in the area that had graffiti on them. To know someone can actually paint a picture this good on a building is amazing. I dont know if graffiti is legal or not but i know the governement spends £100,000 a year to remove graffiti off the streets. Graffiti is mostly done by street kids some of them may be homeless or some dont go to school but its lovely to know they got soo much talent. We should not stop them, we should help them channel their talent into something that would be more productive


“Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. 
And even if you don't come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can 
make someone smile while they're having a piss.”  - Bansky


HAPPY NEW MONTH EVERYONE!!!!!!!

If this is graffiti I am a monk! The guy spent there quite some time -days and nights- even protected and/or subsidized. Mural art or illustrations like this have nothing to do with graffiti, like the Sistine Chapel in Rome, by Michelangelo; it is not a question of the canvas -the wall in this case-. but that other of the appropriation of space, which was the conceptual base for graffiti. Anyway, great artist and great picture. smile
Ti Ukpabio: oh really? correction taken then. Regardless still a good work
The artist must have had fun with this one... lol Good shot Ti.
