Designated graffiti area

Designated graffiti area, 7/5/13

Seen in an underpass near the Brisbane River. Has Banksy been visiting down under? (compare with this image, for example.) Or just an emulator? Either way – no one has yet begun adding street art to the wall. Which is a shame. I’m right with Banksy on this one: why should we be forced to look at inane corporate advertising everywhere we turn, but street art is considered ‘vandalism’ – particularly in an otherwise utterly bland underpass like this one? Well folks of Brisbane, it’s just off Coronation Drive, in Toowong, if you fancy trying your hand.

    Totally agree. Is this really a “designated” urban art area? What a great idea! I’d love to see that here ( SF).

    A few years ago in London the street artist Banksy started leaving this stencil around the place, a neat act of subversion. I suspect – but cannot prove – that despite the ‘Brisbane City Council’ tag seen here, this is also an entirely unofficial initiative.

    Fantastic! Don’t see anything wrong with graffiti! In fact, street art makes me happy!

It's always nice to hear what you think....
