I thought long and hard about featuring this post because it is frankly a little self indulgent.
as long as it’s done legally, I’d be a bit miffed if someone used my fence for their art-work.
It’s a rather unconventional art form,
but it certainly brings colour and humour to what would often be a drab site
and it’s free.
I took these photos in Bristol at the See No Evil exhibition last week, where international artists from all over the world took part.
What’s the difference between graffiti and a mural?
I remember that the organisers were a bit concerned about the graffiti, and during the course of the week before the show opened, it was altered and a rather alarming manga section was removed.
But, hats off to the R.H.S. for going with it, maybe it’s time we saw more graffiti in gardens?
So I hope you enjoy browsing this, and if you want something a little more horticulturally conventional then please have a look at some of my other posts.
