Banksy’s Cans Festival

May 29, 2008

Hi guys!

If you live in London and still havent checked out the amazing street art exhibition on Leake Street in Waterloo I suggest you go and have a look. It is absolutely amazing! There are some truly extra-ordinary pieces of art there. (Yes I do consider it being art)

I think this exhibition makes a great statement and proves that grafitti indeed is art, no matter what some people say. I love grafitti and Ive never been a big fan of those who say that it is vandalism and not art. Of course it is art, and it is very unfortunate that you have a lot of people who make crap pieces, vandalise and give real grafitti artists a bad reputation. There is a fine line between creating a piece of art and vandalising for the sake of just vandalism. And yes, I am aware of the fact that you can find a lot of great, illegal, pieces too. But I still think that people would be less judgemental towards grafitti if people who do it for the sake of just vandalising would stop.

Anyways, if you want to check out some more pictures that I took, click here. And if you like street art and grafitti, this is an exhibition you do not want to miss!

Much Love!
