Inspired Graffiti


Recommended Posts

Just read Zeb's line "It is not a good time to be young and hopeful" - from a bus shelter on Campo Lane and I wondered if this topic has been posted before. Whist not wanting to endorse or encourage the practise, graffiti can be a source of literary wit and genius. I spent a lot of time travelling on Sydney commuter trains and the old brick walls which lined the inner city routes were a canvas for graffiti art some existing since wartime. Zeb's line reminded me of a piece of graffiti I saw from the train every morning, a more pessimistic view of life summed up in 3 words : subsist - consume - die. It must have had a sobering effect on the train-loads of commuters who passed it every day.

Love to hear more like this.
