monday mural

This kind of murals are disappearing in the street. I am wondering if it is a result from the economic crisis or that there are less end less artists prepared to go against weather and authorities to place a mural like this or staying at home behind a computer. Perhaps a combination of both.
One for monday mural here.

  4. I always feel ambivalent to this kind of graffiti. Tagging can have artistic merit, but not like well conceived murals. Still it is part of the urban landscape and often a jumping off point for more sophisticated work. I'm surprised that you're finding less of this in Amsterdam. Maybe city officials are painting over it. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  5. This may not be a bad thing. Maybe only the serious graffiti artists will come out and then the calibre of art will improve.
