It’s all just vandalism, or is it?




I took this a few years ago in Anglesey. It was on the door of a works lock-up at the (completely fabulous) Parys slate mine. I thought it was rather lovely, and worth bringing out again in the light of Banksy’s recent New York sales stunts. Is it art or is it vandalism? Do you know what you like? Discuss.

  2. It's art if commissioned -perhaps?- and sometimes when it isn't... I don't know what I like until I see it and then sometimes it can grow on me even if I dislike it at first... You might appreciate the Signs Signs blog at http://signs2.blogspot.co.uk/
