There's some amazing grafitti art in the Deptford area of London. I've always been fond of murals.

Hello Meri,

I love your mosaic and I'll go visit the link to the other blog too.

Nancy, who owns my local fiber shop was all for me taking photos of it....but she makes most of her income from the tourist trade too. She really has a divine shop..the pictures I took don't do it justice.

Thanks for coming over for a visit..Come back anytime and I'll do the same. :0)

Hugs,
Stephanie ♥

Thanks for sharing. I think the only graffiti in this area is gang related.:(
Thanks for stopping by. No drive bys here. :-) I pulled over in the parking lots for all except on the road. I noticed how blue the sky was and the camera was on the seat - picked it up aimed it towards the windshield and clicked. Had no clue what it would look like. :-D

Good to see such creative energy channeled in a positive direction. Random graffiti creates such blight in neighborhoods. These murals are really well done.

Graffiti art, we can call it. A powerful art and presentation!

Lovely mosaic!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I agree graffiti can be very artistic and expressive ...only if it's done in the proper place and if legal. Very interesting mosaic!

Some real talent out there. Not all great works of art are hung in galleries.

It is an interesting mosaic. Street art or grafittis are real art that anybody can enjoy because it is free.
