In case you didn’t know, we’re avid supporters of street art / graffiti, there’s a lot to be said about injecting some much need creativity & imagination into everyday life. Would you rather look at a row of grey, mouldy council flats or an eight story high mural of brightly clothed girl with blue hair? Exactly.
So we thought it was about time to bring you a brand new collection of characters, colours and concepts from the 4 corners of the world. Are there any local artists at work in your area? If so post your links in the comment below so we can check them out and add them to this article.
Until then, we’ll leave you with these powerful & famous words from Banksy:
Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity. Fuck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head.
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.
