Concrete

People have been writing on walls and scratching surfaces for centuries. When graffiti is done well it can be pretty interesting and a valid and creative art form. I’ve seen some great examples, and our urban environment can certainly be enriched by graffiti art. But so often the graffiti you see day to day is really ordinary and merely vandalism. I don’t think this piece of graffiti is anything great, but what I do like is how it works with the textures in the concrete pillar. I don’t know if the black splodges are related to the tagging, but it’s the combination of squiggle, splodge, concrete and colour that caught my eye.
