ploughing the arable farmland
of the sub-ether
where did you find it?
stella, it's on potterrow in edinburgh, an area that's known for high quality (and generally legal) graffiti art. it's close to the main skating area so the kids often skate then spraypaint or vice versa. this piece definately stands out from the crowd - graffiti usually isn't as expressive in this way.
Weird. Cos i took a similar pic of this a few days ago. There's certainly some unsung heroes about. I mean who sprayed this? I always find it strange that there are people in prison for doing stuff like this. Have a look at http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/news/2007/09/should_we_send_graffiti_artist.html a bit out of date but you get my point.
javaboy, you've just cleared up something major for me. when I saw this graffiti I was SURE I'd seen it before - but couldn't think how because I hadn't been on potterrow for a long time and it definately wasn't there before. I started to think that the guy who made it had copied the image from a magazine and that's where I'd seen it. now I realize - I first saw it on your moblog!
Cool! Also I didn't realise that Soma Coma was also the user name 'billion' cos i've looked at your blog quite a few times. I loved the stuff about the velociraptor. Classic!
Brilliant. an example of how graffiti is a great way of making creativity accessible to anyone and everyone.
Interesting but pretty intense
excellent - and well caught
