A Tribute to Grafitti

Written by on September 15th, 2008 // Filed under design

I love graffiti.  Good graffiti in one of the most impressive forms of public art able to change the aesthetic of a neighborhood giving it a sense of place.  Bad graffiti reminds us of the inherent messiness of our urban spaces offering a subtle suggestion that not all see the same city we do.  This weekend, Smashing Magazine, a design blog I follow, posted a “Tribute to Graffiti” that includes 50 amazing works of graffiti.  Some are by artists I had heard of (i.e. Banksy), but most are from artists that are less well known.

Below are some of my favorites from the bunch:
