Street/ 13 and 14 – Signs of our times

Two bits of street artwork/graffiti I saw recently on my travels, the first one especially chilling:

  1. Agreed, the first one is chilling, the second I really like.

  2. They are very well drawn Sue, up to Banksy standard. I can see the first one becoming a popular T-shirt logo.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. That’s just another warning of what we can become, if we take the road most travelled.

  4. Dear me! Sad times we live in.

  5. I hate guns…

    (BTW do you realise there is a very rude word written on the first image? Just saying… you might want to do some cloning)

    • I hate guns too…and yes, I did realise there was a rude word, but I hav taken an image straight from the street, didn’t even think about it….perhaps I’ll crop it so the word isn’t obvious….

  6. Suzanne

    so sad and so very, very depressing really.

  7. Superbly constructed – perhaps we should take heart from the creativity rather than the message.

  8. Chilling, shocking, frightening…a very powerful image.

  9. That first one is indeed chilling.

  10. These are both moving in frightening ways, of course the first has struck us all, rightfully so. And the quote in the second image fits them both quite well. But then I find all the other art/graffiti fill in the story. The perfume bottle, the dinosaur image, the word unify. wot future, the gate over the person but not the gun. These pictures are societal portraits in their own right. The child soldier is almost faceless, nameless while the perfume bottle is sharp, defined, and identifiable. What would we say were we archeologists years after the fall of this society?

    Thanks for sharing.

  11. It’s depressing what one finds on walls. As a coherent piece of art, the second has something going for it although I don’t like the obsession with guns. The first is unpleasant and clearly the work of more than one person – and it reminds me of the ‘trolling’ that happens on Twitter. These are both social commentaries on the world we live in – sad.

  12. yes disturbing and a sad commentary of today’s world!!! Great shots Sue!
