I am fascinated by Leake Street, off Lower Marsh in Waterloo. You can stroll through everyday and see some new work or someone in the process of painting over another’s. I met a guy, in the midst of creating is art, from Australia who came over here to paint and a guy from France who came and was just finishing his. They were both beautiful and creative.
Lately though the artists have been far and few and mostly what is displayed now is gang tagging(definitely not art!). Makes me wonder about graffiti culture. I asked the Australian if he minded that is labours are soon defiled and gone. His answer was levelled and honest, simply “Nah”.
