Street Art

3 Jan

Every so often a painting on a bus stop or a drawing above a urinal makes me smile. My favourite of all time is one I saw in a Brighton pub. Someone scribbled “I FUCKED YOUR MUM” and underneath someone else replied “GO HOME DAD, YOU’RE DRUNK”. I struggled to keep the urine porcelain-bound.

Street art has great potential, primarily because it’s so accessible. You don’t need to pay an entrance fee or wait for some dawdling tourist to sidestep. It’s everywhere. Sometimes unwelcome, sometimes a joy to ponder while you’re waiting for a bus or marching to work. What’s important is that they give pleasure, wether it be Isaac Cordal’s diminutive sculptures or Robbie Rowland’s Street Signs, they provide a break from standardised, mass-produced objects. A beautiful blot on a built-up canvas.

Here are some links to walls and pavements which should be left untouched:
