Street art is by no means a new idea, it’s likely as old as civilization itself. However these little musing, pictures and alike have no doubt made my life more enjoyable. Be they inane, philosophical, ironic or just plain rude, they were made to be seen.
Some will see this website as glamorizing vandalism. On the other hand it can be seen as a glimpse into the world of an obscure person, a person who has expressed themselves. Expressing ourselves truthfully is something that we as a society have become a little too afraid to do these days, purely because of what other people may think.
Think about it this way. Everywhere, all over our towns and cities, our vision is bombarded with messages. Usually pushing material goods we very often don’t need. Currently the status quo is this; the people who pay big money are able to distribute their message unobstructed, without payment you have committed an illegal act.
What people take out of these images is purely in the eye of the beholder. There is no square bit of card explaining who did it and when, and definitely not explaining its purpose, because that is for you the viewer to decide. There will also be something resembling a rant from me. I hope you excuse me for the lack of sense I make.
You, my lovely visitors can also have a little read of the rants I post alongside the photos by clicking the little ‘read more’ buttons below the photos. I have to forewarn you that the majority of the writing makes very little sense. By definition they are nonsensical but I’d still like to hear your opinions. After all, this is what this blog is about, the views of others.
