Collage Graffiti and Jay Block

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.

  1. Thank you for this "encore", Rebecca! Collage graffiti. I now see this from yet a different angle. I like it a lot...
