there are a few household names out there... of whom i am sure will get a run in here...

but, good graffiti is good graffiti, so the artist/author doesnt really matter most of the time...

local 'maser' did this first one on the dual carriage way at the end of the tunnel from the airport to the city... it may seem pretty plain, but his work isn't like this usually, he just went pretty big on social comment in the last while, and so bolder fonts are used to help drive home a message... the second has a similar theme... out of control bank loans crushing the common man across the country...

Yes, graffiti.

I love it. Another avenue of artistic self-expression at the expense of the man and his public roads, buidings, streets, overpass ramps, etc.

What could be better?

That's interesting. Notice how the artist said "I'm bored". I was surprised by the amount in Italy, it was all over the place in historical looking cities. It was a contrast for sure, but unlike the people in the video I enjoyed it. Although I could see why they dislike it if it is all over historical monuments.

yet not every bored is tepid or negligent in his spiritual exercises that can lead to greater wisdom. noticed that he also said "it's a beautiful crime"?

The 3D street art is so amazing. Can't imagine how long it would take to do that, but they're always so amazing and realistic.

there are some highly beautiful graffitis out there indeed but the fact that 99% of them are crap kind of gives them a bad rap

Good graffiti is sensational :bowdown: but just tagging is so :o bland. The the 3D stuff and full on painting and whatever is incredible
