In honor of an my newest article (coming out in The Tampa Tribune on Saturday) I changed my layout and header. The picture is of graffiti at Crossover Community Church in Tampa, FL.

Graffiti at Crossover Community Church

Graffiti has always fascinated me. It’s in-your-face guerrilla art, often showing off bright colors and an urban sensibility.

Web Urbanist often has articles about all sorts of urban art. The newest WU article is about abandoned buildings in America; every time I read the site, I realize I have a lot to explore in my own back yard.

So, is graffiti a modern scourge or an art form unto itself?

About these ads
  1. I think that some of the places people manage to get graffiti is impressive.Good or not, it is usually interesting to look at.

  2. I think graffiti is at times, a misdirected art form. When it defaces otherwise pleasing buildings or bridges, it’s misdirected. A slur to the eye. Other times, like in the Church photo in your post, it’s a welcome splash of color.

  3. u might want to take a look at my blog..
