Urban street art...

"Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don't come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile when they're having a piss."
          - Banksy, Banging Your Head Against a Brick Wall


Love this quote, It's so true. Graffiti makes me smile all the time and it's the one thing I never get bored of taking pictures of. I seem to capture street art everywhere I travel, most recently Barcelona and New York. I wanted to share a few of my favourites with you so I hope they make you smile too!


BARCELONA...



NEW YORK...



Now I will pay homage to the one and only Banksy. Just love him! I have a great fact actually that I was told not so long ago on a photography night course. If you go down to the South Bank you'll see a trail of white paint drips all the way up ... that is apparently the work of the graffiti king himself after a late night graff sess - tut tut! Banksy we salute you!
