“Love Ludlow.” That’s the message as you walk under the railway between Sheet Road and Sandpits. A more recent expression of artistic talent on Market Square is “I’m making a call”. Should you want to see a female ‘brother’ – drop down to Friars Walk.
All these illegal artworks send messages. All are graffiti. All could be described as vandalism or even criminal damage. But aren’t they art? Don’t they brighten up our town? Do they create talking points?
Let me know you views.
These are not the only examples of graffiti around the town of late. Images on Temeside have been painted over. I hear that there has been graffiti on Bread Walk but haven’t seen it. And there is still a bit of random tagging around the town. That in my view doesn’t qualify as art.
What do you think about these three recent graffiti images? Should graffiti be considered art or vandalism?
