Graffiti Town – Part III

August 28th, 2010

Carrying on from Part I and Part II, this is the third and last instalment of the series on graffiti, wall art and tagging on the streets of Brussels.

I was struck by the contrast between the different forms of self-expression – the random destructiveness and vandalism that seem to be the hallmarks of tagging, versus the artistry and/or fun of graffiti and wall art.

I found the social commentary, spray-painted on the wall of a gas station, particularly amusing.

We are there. Clearly.

The entirety of the wall was used for the image. Yep, that means that everything from the windows to the drain pipe to the texture of the wall was drawn and painted.

Overkill, perhaps?

More coming soon!
