There is (or at least there was last time I was there) a walkway around
the outside of the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral in London. Over the exit
was a sign "WAY DOWN". Underneath someone had written "upon the
Swannee Ribber"

i don't think, or to my eye it does not seem to have anything to do with spanish politics. 1984, that was Reagan, right? We got cowboy skeletons waving american flag... i'd guess it's just an opinion on the american administration at the time. wonder what the author would paint today. bush is also a cowboy, skulls woud be more, i guess.


I thought similar thoughts about Reagan and Cowboys. Although, Reagan was more known as an actor, here. I assumed it was a social commentary on American policies.

I went on line and researched political graffiti around Alahambra but came up with nothing. But maybe they do the same thing in Spain as is done in the US is paint over it, the building may be gone. Nevertheless it is a great piece of political art. I am going to keep looking.

Terrific thread, Sglass!

I love good political grafitti but haven't seen any for ages ... not in my neck of the woods anyway. A pity. Sad

This is a prominently posted, personal grafitti message I often pass when shopping:

Give me back my heart, you dirty, rotten desert rat!

Been there for ages. I hope s/he's feeling better now! :wink:

... & I'm sure everyone's familiar with this one. I first saw it in the London underground, years & years ago:

Don't vote. It just encourages them.

Ha, I suspect some of those early cave paintings were teenage pornagraphy. Some things never change, huh? Laughing

Seen in the loo of the Bodieian Library at Oxford.

Arabs f**k off home

Someone replied:

Dear boy, I think you'll find cubicle 2 is the venue for xenophia and racial bite. This cubicle is reserved for literary jokes and whimsical word play. Hope that helps.

Be nice to your children, because they will choose your nursing home.

Merry Andrew commented on this one. One of the teachers he works with has this slogan on a bumper sticker. Her daughter gave it to herl.

I love the garlic one...

and like some real life graffiti for its power, sometimes. Certainly some Mexican murals roil with power.

Mostly I'm on the other side. I design things, I've built walls, designed public spaces over a lot of hours; I like spaces to be cared for in other ways than as blackboards of desperation, much as I get the desperation. I have to say I enjoyed some anti-reagan graffiti in Rome..
Money is not so much the issue, at the same time it is the overwhelming issue - but small corners of this earth are cared for, swept, by the community...

However -

Even bathroom stalls.. you think all owners are rich? um, maybe, but in many cases graffiti happens on some poor slob's back fence, which he or she may have built in the first place, or eaked out paying for, and keeps trying to keep nice.

The cutification of graffiti depowers the powerful stuff, and desensitizes us re our communal space. I've lived in graffitiville, home of gang wars. The amusement diminishes.

Some of the saddest graphiti I've ever seen was in the Ladies' Room of a family restaurant.

We do acid
We do tea
We're the Class
Of 1984.

Any literary references were probably not intended.
