As some of you may know I'm a fan of graffiti. I had a good wander around London on Monday braving the torrential rain to get some pictures.

Hope that you like, I'm hoping that some other graffiti lovers will add in lots more good stuff that I'm not aware of.

Have any of you got Banksy's book? If not try and get it it's only like £7 off amazon but it's worth it. Some of the pranks that guy pulls are brilliant and the artwork he does is amazing.

Yep, good book.

There's a great book called Street Logos covering loads of other lesser known graffiti artists like Arofish, Eine, Dface etc. Also the wonderful website artofthestate.co.uk is well worth checking out for pictures of graffiti, urban dereliction etc. There's one of my pics in the blog as well! :)

The Birmingham and Midland Taxi Company are most definitely the most talented taggers in the Midlands:


I also like how the taggers here in Eastside managed to incorporate a noose into their work. Very innovative!

Birmingham and Midlands are prolific. It seems they got nicked before they had a chance to say where they moved to! :|

These are some from Brizzle (unfortunately they're stolen from flickr :shifty:
i'll try and take some pics of some in Bedminster and Montpelier/St pauls which is the epicentre for high quality (if that's not an oxymoron ;)) graffiti) although it would be best to call them street art for alot of them considering they're not Graffiti for certain ones. (such as the first one etc. etc.)

oh and they're from the albums of Le Kizz and colomane1

And just one more which has become quite famous and its actually quite hard to take a picture of this one (as I found out the hard way) as lots of people like to take their pic by it on the bridge that sits opposite it.

awesome!

steve, my house is covered in tags so a few more really won't bother me at all. of course when i say i love graffiti i mean i love the sort of stuff helium has posted. the more abstract and weirdly incorporated into it's surroundings, the better.

I think graffiti looks good until a load of rudeboys fucking tag it with shit names like there gang tag. It pisses me off to see good artwork ruined by these little fuckers.
Someone I know has a tag called "Porno". He was even in the Evening Post. Ranny you may have seen it whilst being in town. He's an absolute **** and I saw an advert advertising for people who have any information on tags to come forward. A £1000 reward is available. Im abit strapped for cash at the minute I might get myself down the police station.

I remember seeing on this site ages ago (maybe 2003/4 when i was a lurker and hadn't joined fyi) and there was this neoclassical building in the US (it was a small building, i think maybe a chapel or courthouse :dunno:)and was completely covered roof to floor and wall to wall in that weird abstract street art style that you speak of, (i think it was meant to be a project a load of art students were doing but again i can't remember :bash: )
