I have been soaking up the vibrant street art of San Francisco and London.
Banksy celebrates it:
"Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing"
David Lynch hates it:
"Graffiti is ugly, stupid and threatening – there's more creativity in crochet."
And Roland Barthes dissects it:
"We know that what constitutes graffiti is in fact neither the inscription nor its message but the wall, the background, the surface (the desktop); it is because the background exists fully, as an object which has already lived..."
Think I like it.
