Illegal Art

February 5, 2010

The idea for this post came from a fellow when she introduced a new blog project on graffiti art. The pictures below are from an underground walking tunnel in Florence that I had been obsessed about visiting because I enjoy graffiti. Actually, I don’t just enjoy it, I have a slight obsession about it and really believe that it is art. Enjoy the pictures I took of this graffiti tunnel.

Pictures to give you an idea of how much graffiti decorated the tunnel’s walls.

The following are works of graffiti that I really enjoyed.

    Fascinating! Some of those artists are really good! Now if all of that could be properly channelled. I live in the country, far from any large city, but I see graffiti on train cars as they go by, having been “tagged” probably in Seattle. Some of it is poor, but a few things are quite good. I’m sure they don’t do it under the best of conditions.

    Wow, this is massive! And beautiful Loved it Maggie! I am guessing this work was probably done by a group of artists. Was it a part of a project…or do you think it just sprung up?

    Thank you, many times, for the mention. It is much appreciated, and I am humbled. I think we have a connection here!:)

    Maggie, these pictures are great! Which train spot in Florence are they located in? I’ll go check it out myself!

    I had to ask my friend because I was never able to get around Florence when I was out of the central main part.
    Campo di marte, in piazza cure, right next to the gelateria cavini (really yummy!)

    Well, here’e me trying to make the rounds of my fave blogs I’ve been a bit slack in visiting for a while and what’s this I find? You’ve changed your theme as well. I’ve just come from Tam’s blog and she’s changed hers too. What’s going on I ask myself. But yep… I like this one, muchly.

    And the other thing I find is all these wonderful pics. Yeah, when work’s of that calibre I don’t even think of it as graffiti… definitely street art. And what super examples. Magnificent!
