    Art that good deserves to be called something other than graffiti. 🙂

    Most of the time graffiti is nothing more than juvenile mischief, often destructive. That said, I ‘ve seen some awesome graffiti done so artistically that it is an enhancement to the area or neighborhood. There is some real talent out there and I’d rather see them do art work than take drugs and shoot each other. Of course the graffiti along my back fence is quite ugly and a major exception.

  3. Wow to me this is art and not graffiti:)

    We each of us have our own individual way of expressing ourselves. There is a little bit of self discovery along with a whole lot of emitting emotions going on here. And frequently great beauty. Graffitti has become an art form onto itself and should be treated as such! But then that’s just my creative thoughts on the matter, Penny 🙂

  5. I think there’s a difference between graffiti and street art, as the famous Banksy has so graphically demonstrated, and this is a wonderful example…

    I live near to the quayside in Exeter in Devon and a short time ago graffiti artists decorated the bridges – I particularly like the Finding Nemo one.

      Do you ever take pictures? It would be great for you to share what is in your area.

        I sometimes take pictures of the quayside that I have posted to Twitter and Facebook and of my Guineapigs but mostly spend my spare time writing, doing courses, being a Health Buddy and working on my websites. I will bear in mind that this interests you and see what I can do. Although the weather is turning not so nice now and Exeter won’t look quite as beautiful as it does in the sunny weather. Thanks for the suggestion.

    The real graffiti is an art in itself. Unfortunately there is what I call “daubers” who destroy 🙂

    We used to enjoy street art when we lived in Boston, but out here? Mostly, no sidewalks or places for street art and it’s so miserable out most of the year no one bothers. I miss it, though. Boston had some great street art as did New York.

    Yes, some of those things are brilliant.
