Interesting Graffiti.

Monday, August 27, 2007

I've been seeing some very interesting pieces lately. This first one is right around the corner from my place in Chicago. I pass by that very same spot almost everyday and it wasn't there the day before. Basquiat is my all-time favorite fine artist as you all are aware.

About a mile away is this one, another that popped up overnight. It's got that Bratz feel; that cute face with no nose look.

In Berlin, these posters caught my eye. A subversive dig at the hipster scene? Minimal backlash? These were plastered right next to Watergate a.k.a. minimal emo scenester central, so that could be a clue. You can be insulting somebody and still be design-forward. Love it.

This building is right next to Berlin Ostbahnhof, a.k.a. the big train station. What a nice message to start the day.

  • With a background like I'm using on Myspace page, how could I not comment. There are lots of talented artists known only to those "in the know" so to speak. I'd love to see some of their work.
