You can’t buy this art

Posted in arty farty, Canal, Graffiti, observation, Off The Wall, Street Art, Walk with tags , , , , , on February 19, 2018 by lkthayer

During a short walk along the canal between Fenny Stratford & Simpson, I spotted this under a bridge. I found the artwork or graffiti depending on your choice of how you perceive an image, quite fascinating. Would I find this in a gallery of art? Could I buy it? Two ticks of “No” may well roll off the tongue…. The image on the right has been painted over the same similar image on the left. There is an untold story here as they both face each other static but talking!!! All very intriguing and only the two artists or vandals can cast the light!!! I just love the open world as a canvas but of course you may just hate it…..

As I got off the bus in Kentish Town, London…… Just happened to stumble into a car wash yard to snap some fun street art by “The Lurkers” and “Mau Mau” If anyone knows who painted the first snap in my collage please let me know!

Five Banksy locations snapped in London on 30th September 2017 ~ Three around the Barbican ~ The Flower Painter in Bethnal Green ~ Phone Tap still in pristine condition can be found off Chrisp Street in Poplar. How long these and a few others in London will be on tap to freely view on the streets in situ remains to be seen!!!
