Re: Graffitimundo: Art from the streets of Buenos Aires

PHeymont ·
Graffiti is always a good way to start a hot conversation, because the line between art and vandalism is so hotly contested, as is some people's comfort level with work that is clearly art, but which confronts their vision both of art and society. That confrontation can be sharp, because street art often comes from people who don't have the resources to take part in the "conventional, comfortable" art world. Ironically, people are now paying huge sums for work by the late Keith Haring, who...

Re: Graffitimundo: Art from the streets of Buenos Aires

DrFumblefinger ·
Those are all interesting comments, PHeymont. And I do love the attached photo! I am not a fan of graffiti, although I love great street art of the type shown in this blog.

For example, in Prague the "John Lennon" wall (see photos below) was an important symbol of the resistance to Soviet Communism. After the great singer/songwriter was assassinated, graffiti sprang up on one wall in the city mentioning him and...

Re: July 16, 2016: Left Luggage, Liverpool

GarryRF ·
Not the most artistic - but something that makes you think. And each admirer will add their own interpretation to what it symbolises. You could just sit there and watch the faces of kids who've never seen it before, and watch their faces light up with bewilderment. Street art. Love it.

Re: Clashing Views: Who's responsible for fees and misery?

Travel Rob ·
I have to disagree with Megan McArdle on this.US Domestic fares and fees have been going up because of less competition in airline fares because of the mergers. The public has few reasonable alternatives.
