Urban Artists

I have always been fascinated by graffiti artists whose artistry compliments their neighborhood rather than desecrates it.  Sometimes I play a little game of trying to decipher their meanings which sends me off daydreaming to the point where I am caught off-guard.  I am not suggesting this of course.  But lately, the creative juices are flowing more fluidly as more and more local graffiti is finding its way onto highways, byways and in hard-to-access places around New Jersey.  I don’t know why.  Maybe the graffiti artists are interested in taking back their turf.  Maybe they’re tired of their bad wraps and want to make amends.  Maybe they are just tempting the law.  Whatever the reason, it’s entertaining and can send brilliant minds aflutter in all different directions. 

Have a look around, blog some graffiti photos.  Let’s see what you come up with.

Carpe Diem and all that jazz!
