I found the picture with this post, down a side street, off the main thoroughfare. A full size Darth Vader, paintbrush in hand, lurks in another unloved part of the town (this will be going up on DGEye.wordpress.com, shortly). And I now pass another interesting composition when I’m on the bus, but I’ll need a car to get to photograph that one.
These pictures have made me think again about graffiti.
Nine times out of ten, I would say ‘criminal damage’. And frankly, if I woke up one morning and found a life size picture of a Predator painted on my wall, I would be exceptionally cross.
However, these are very good …
Therefore, I’ve decided to assume that artist got permission first. Then I can enjoy them for what they are.
Something out of the ordinary in our bland urban landscape.
