Layers of Street Art

Shot with Olympus E500
When I came across this, the first thing to catch my eye was the "Faile Collective" picture, followed by the straight graffiti that had me reaching for the Internet to find out what it meant. Then I looked and saw the red heart, almost like a critical evaluation of the scene, and then the tag. But then I looked at the paint itself, and saw the way it is peeling: the depth of layers, colours and the overall effect. You could write a thesis on this wall on its own.

I thought it said 'My Wife Is A Drunk' but the author had misjudged the D of Drunk. A hazard inherent in writing on a vertical surface...

A thesis about the wall? I am sure someone has done it already and a few others have started.

hmm wonder what a Prunk actually is? Probably a fine upstanding woman who wishes she hadn't married a graffitist...

Well all I can say is that those definitions of "Prunk" are quite interesting. The second one in particular made me go :-o


Blogger Ham said ... (23:35) : 

Hey Chaz, that would probably make more sense!

Helen, all in all, it's just another brick in the wall

lynn, no excuse not to be shocked, follow the link

ann, I suspect that people make up a lot of hte definitions in the urban dictionary. If not, I hav eled an extraordinary sheltered life
