Following on from Marie's blog yesterday, and art that speaks another langauge, there is something about J Block's work that says graffiti to me. This is one of those unscientific things. I am not trying to categorise it, it's just that in my mind I feel a link. This piece by J arrived with some pieces of the collage furling at the edges, like an abandoned billboard. Thanks J. I love it.
At the start of the new year I was in Edinburgh and was transfixed by wall after wall of graffiti. Graffiti is one of those things I've grown into, which is probably backwards...
Marie's work has a very different feel, but similarly makes me think about the inherent art in graffiti.
