Crimes of Passion
The Royal West of England Academy should be congratulated for the recent "Crimes of Passion" exhibition showing the work of various Bristol graffitti artists. It was a really vibrant and exciting event which I happened across by chance. I uploaded some pictures to my facebook site I am not sure if there are copyright issues, but I guess if you leave your art on walls in the street you have to suffer the consequences. The wackiest item on display was Andy Council's dinosaur; he should produce a 3D graphic image for the web so that more people can enjoy and explore it. Dora's ladies were particularly poignant and atmospheric. The best graffitti slogan was "When a bike is stolen another fairy dies" which works for me.
