graffiti

I'm really not sure if it is vandalism or art, but sometimes it brings spirit in the boring cityscape. This one faces the courtyard of the Spanish secondary school.
Please visit the other graffiti galleries - there are more than 140 today:

Art or vandalism, it does attract you eye and it lights up the houses :)

Jilly said...

to be this is rather scary. I wonder if that was the intention.

Denton said...

I suspect the vandal was a student from the Spanish secondary school. The authorities might want to visit with the art students (smile) especially those who have maser the a technique of shadows.

brian said...

i have the same question, but aside from the writing i'd say this one looks like art. nice photo!

Southern Heart said...

I find this one a bit ominous as well...I wonder if the students like it?

Clueless in boston said...

It is sort of evil looking, and eye catching.

lachezar said...

Nice catch! I'm sure it brings a bit of cheer to a dull school wall! Certainly worth recording! with time the changing "artwork" on this wall will tell a story of its own!

Cheers!

interesting - obviously there is a certain amount of artistic talent here but it isn;#'t well channelled

Nathalie said...

A bit gloomy, but good photo for the theme!

Isadora said...

Do you notice a uniform style of the Eastern European graffiti? It seems to be more crude, raw, gloomy - or is it just me?

Deslilas said...

Both are true. Some better place could be found.

Neva said...

I agree...not sure if it is art or graffiti....nice shot.

Ben said...

Good one! The definition of art is very subjective and changes in time. Good to document now, you never know what will be there next.
