Meaningless Graffiti in Manchester

I really enjoy photographing street art and graffiti and have featured a number of fantastic examples of graffiti from cities such as Barcelona. However, being a local to Manchester city centre most of my graffiti photos come from there. This was taken very close to my old flat and is a perfect example of what I call “meaningless graffiti”. In my opinion it shows little artist merit or value and to me doesn’t add to the building. It just looks a little messy and unreadable. Obviously this is my opinion and I would love to hear your opinions on the issue of what is and what isn’t acceptable to you in the world of street art or graffiti.

  1. This isn’t too bad! I’ve seen much worse in and around the city centre. I’m a particular fan of tagging, so my opinion may bee seen to be a slight biased toward a style of graffiti that most people hate. I’d rather this than some halfwit kid scrawling their name and an insult in bad english.
