You can’t buy this art

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…..

Flashback to this snap I took on 24th December 2007 ~ Ben Eine painted his VANDALISM onto the Village Underground wall along Holywell Lane…

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!

Street art in Iceland

Lots of nice street art can be found in Iceland including D*FACE and ELLE snapped in Reykjavik. Other artist I can credit for snapping their street art are:  AGENT FRESCO,  EVOCA 1, ULFUR ULFUR, STROK, MAMMUT, NOT DEAD YET, KIDDY DUST, UGLY BOYS…. There are many  more murals that I could not snap due to not having enough time in Iceland. Well worth a visit but be warned Iceland is a very expensive country for eating drinking and accommodation!!!

Banksy reaching new heights

DSCF9030eA one in a million chance that I stopped my car almost at the top of the Cheddar Gorge to get out and stretch my legs with a short scramble up the side of the rock face only to find the fading weathered words of a Banksy stencil “This is not a photo opportunity”. Also just below where I was standing, I saw two women climbing the rock face. I have blended a snap of one of the ladies with the Banksy snap to make this image…. Not tooooooo cheesy I hope…… And how did Banksy know I would one day bring my camera to this very spot?
