Graffiti and Murals
Considering the amount of PRIME tagging surface in and around the city of London, I was amazed and impressed that the graffiti artists show so much respect for their city by adding creative value where they doodle rather than taking value away by defacing beautiful architecture. (Either that, or the laws for graffiti are so tough it’s not worth getting caught!)
Anyway you look at it, what graffiti and murals I did find, were photo worthy and I’m happy to share them here, as well as some from the coastal town of Whitstable, where I was lucky enough to plant my arse in the same seat where Peter O’Toole planted his! True story 🙂
This mural, painted high up on the side of an old building supposedly depicts the royal family. I don’t know if it’s offensive to them, but personally, I think it rocks!
The above three pieces of wall art, are on the walls and a concrete column surrounding an area kids use for skateboarding and bike tricks. It’s quite clever what they’ve done and the murals are fantastic! And yes, that’s OUR fearless leader; so popular in Bonny Ol’ England. That’s something huh?
Glad we cleared up who the author is right? Would hate not knowing!
This one was just too cute to pass by…no clue what it means, but me likey
Graffiti’s answer to the Rorschach test?
Talk about creative!
This is actually a beach hut in Whitstable, painted entirely with these characters.
Tiny though the beach hut is, it HUGE on fun
And finally (blurrily?)…
Life is Beautiful.
Yes. Yes it is!
