Graffiti

By Anna | 4 Comments »

I saw this great piece of Graffiti while commuting today. We don’t get much entertaining graffiti here in the ‘ham (mostly just basic tags and scribbled mess), but this one made me giggle and wonder what artist was behind the piece. Whoever you are, I salute you!

*****************************

“you are beautiful” was also added in big bright white letters to a bridge passing over the expressway this weekend. We love it!

    To quote from Wikipedia
    ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ was a poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of World War II, to raise the morale of the British public in the case of invasion. It was little known and never used. The poster was rediscovered in 2000 and has been re-issued by a number of private sector companies, and used as the decorative theme for a range of other products.’
    Very nice to see it in this version by an artist in your town! Inspiring and worthy. You can see the original poster here –

    Brewmaster Ken – thanks for the history! I have seen the posters around but I had no idea they weren’t actually used.

    Steph it’s on 1st Avenue South around 23rd Street.
