Theme Day - Graffiti


This building in downtown Phoenix appears to be covered with graffiti.  It might be painted this way on purpose, but it appears a little cluttered to be called 'art'.

I rather like the bussiness of street art. here it might only last a few hours until someone else covers it. Is it like thatin Phoenix

Gosh, this looks like I feel when I've got a headache! A bit OTT but it's graffiti alright. Not sure I'd call it street art, in fact I wouldn't. A good choice, Sharon.

this is a bit too cluttered for my liking. it should be all one cohesive mural

Nice find for theme day Sharon. Happy Weekend.

I wouldn't want it on my fence (unless it was that dragon/snake creature up in the upper right which I think is rather cool) and it's not the best mural I've ever seen but I don't think I'd classify it as graffiti. To me graffiti is usually only in black, red or white paint, includes gang symbols and typically offensive words. Whoever did this believed they were doing something artistic. This doesn't look like something the neighborhood watch is sending out the volunteers with spray paint to cover it up.

It's that parking lot of Verde. I kind of like it (although admit it is cluttered) It stands apart from at the traditional murals popping up around town. Street art should have a bit of edge to it.
