Illegal Art! Leave No Inch Uncovered!

Illegal Art or Vandalism?

Illegal art is always a hot topic and the cause of many a pub argument, is it urban graffiti art or is it simply vandalism?

These pics will probably sway you in one direction or the other.  But if you look at some of my previous posts you’ll see some incredible creativity from urban artists, street artists & graffiti artists from all around the world.  Even though I love pics like the ones in this post I realise they are not to everyone’s taste.  As a snap shot of a city I love them, defacing something, however illegal can be pretty fun.  I guess that’s the problem though, and the reason why so much illegal art will last the small amount of time it takes for a someone to remove it.

See more illegal art, graffiti art and urban art from many street artists from all over this painted planet on my street art blog or stay up to date on google plus.

This piece of solid gold from the Village People was released in 1985, the height of 80s music and features one hell of a funny video!

Graffiti Art in Progress

Graffiti Art Easter Works in Progress!

I was working on some new graffiti art / paintings this Easter and as you can tell from the hat it was pretty cold.  I take that back it was DAMN COLD!

But to everyone out there I hope you all had a great Easter weekend!

I think this has got to be one of the first years I have not eaten a single chocolate egg….getting old.  Thought I’d post a few in progress pics just to prove I really was out in the cold!

Hopefully I will get these and a few more done in the next few weeks and get them published online.  Not enough time in the day…
