Graffiti

Ive noticed more and more areas around the city center are being used for legal graffiti, some of it is pretty cool too. There are also a few shops that are selling professional spray painting equipment.

What do you think about graffiti?
Should it be encouraged in certain areas, would you like to be living next to a designated graffiti area?

What is the best graffiti you have seen?
What is the Funniest, what was the worst?

I came across this one today on Abbey street that made me chuckle.


It was just so stupid and because it was on a temporary hording i didnt mind it so much. There is a lot of crap around though. I hate seeing shit like 'Mary lvs Anto 4eva' written on shop walls.

The Beautiful photo of 'Dublins Last Supper' in the Italian Quarter gets idiots writing on it from time to time, thankfully it seems to be washed off easily.
People who destroy genuine works of beauty with graffiti should be locked away for being fucking idiots.

Ive seen a good few witty examples in Dublin, though I think a certain pub in Kilkenny that I was in with Gollum had the most prolific and lyrical stuff. The entire toilets were covered in it, must dig out some pics I took.

I like a bit of good graffiti once its creative and isn't done to intimidate or
deface other peoples property.

Whenever I see insightful snatches of genuine wisdom or fun it makes me smile, but
so much of it is innane,self indulgent shite and I absolutely HATE people who
tag their names all over the place. Apart from being conceited its just embarrassingly childish that anyone would feel a sense of accomplishment from territorial pissing with a marker. Scarlet for them !

Stop signs seem to attract humorous graffiti.
Stop Hammertime
Stop in the name of love

Yeah i've spotted that one myself lol
I like some of the poster type graffiti that goes up too. Recently someone asted up posters of 90's rock stars like curt cobain (great strand street) Thom York (Parnell street) as well as beth Ditto and others around the city.

For a while there was a photo of someone wearing a mask posted up on the 'Wall of Fame' in Temple bar. It was probably there for a year before someone finally took it down. It had 'Ghetto Fame' written beside it.

Ive come across a few Banksy-esk pictures along the canal too over the years, unfortunately some dickwad always ends up tagging their name over it.

I like good graffiti, I think it could do wonders for a lot of areas where there is a lack of greenery and a surplus of concrete. I do hate the awful X loves Y, Amy O'Shea is Fat Knacker etc. I have a view of some of Liberty Lane from my flat, there is some impressive stuff there.

There are a few walls designated for graffiti just off the quays between Capel st bridge and smithfield that have some nice paintings on.

Nicely done graffiti brightens up a drab city.

A couple that stick in my head are ones I've seen in toilets. One was in Whelan's (I think): 'Tom Waits for no man', under which someone had written, 'I've seen better graffiti in Eamon Doran's'.

In what used to be Juice Café on George's Street the only piece of graffiti was the following exchange, added to gradually:

'You are not what you own!'
'Oh yes I am!'
'...and this is my wife, Mrs. Whatyouown.'

Some kid (he was caught on CCTV) defaced the local parish hall a while back with graffiti, and privately the clergy both thought it was quite artistic and didn't want to remove it!

I can't understand a word you're saying with that English accent?? You need to sort that out.

On topic, there was some great graffiti in the old Juice Cafe on Georges Street about not being what you own, I wish I could remember the details.

Anyone hear about the young fella that was nabbed spray-painting the parish hall a while back, apparently the priest actually liked his work.
