The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Grafitti Solution

Love it or hate it grafitti is something of the modern age. 

Banksy the Bristol artist has turned it into something quite special. 

But how can a forum for it be created without the ensuing negative connotations? 

The Dutch have an answer.  

Today I saw this sign. 

It says 

Legal grafitti training area
grafitti art is allowed here subject to the following. The highway should not be blocked pedestrians and cyclists must be able to pass and all rubbish should be disposed of properly in the bins provided. 

Isn’t that smart?    
Now it’s under a railway bridge. It’s nasty and ugly and the art work definitely improves the place.

    One of the buildings in one of our funkier neighborhoods has a wall that is periodically painted in the graffiti style and is an eye catching sight.

      I think it can be very beautiful in the right context. And it’s a strong urban art form.
