Joy Diversion

I know this pic has been posted about a bit over the past few weeks or so. But I happened to walk past it in on my way to Northern Digitals the other day and it got me thinking about the art of graffiti.

 When done cleverly, with a bit of wit and a tongue firmly in cheek then it can be really succesful and form a sort of landmark, such as works from Banksy etc, and contribute to an area. Done badly and it does exactly the opposite and starts what can be a downward cycle of vandalism and neglect.

 Whether good or bad, the result often outlives the period in which the graffiti remains and certainly the brief moment of inspiration from the artist or vandal.

 Anyway this bit of marker fun made me smile.
