Love will tear us apart graffiti

Love will tear us apart graffiti

I came across this graffiti on a shop’s shutter in Tib Street in the Northern Quarter of Manchester and although I wasn’t sure what batman was doing, I did like the saying “Love will tear us apart”. Looking up Trafford Parsons shows he’s a local artist who takes inspiration from popular culture, particularly from the 1970s icons such as Storm Troopers or Sci-Fi monsters!

Graffiti Park Barcelona

Graffiti Park Barcelona

Until recently I had no idea what this small park near the harbour in Barcelona was called, just that it was a short walk from the end of La Rambla. These are the Jardins de Walter Benjamin and as you can see from the photograph above they feature a long wall of graffiti. What I liked is that the street art in this park wasn’t frowned upon. In some sections the wall had been divided up into panels and there was a group of young men happily painting away at the other end.

What If? Sheffield Hallam University

What If? Sheffield Hallam University

This is the Owen Building, part of Sheffield Hallam University. On the side of the building is a poem called ‘What If?’ by Andrew Motion, written for the Off The Shelf literature festival in 2007. I was in Sheffield as my younger cousin was due to start studying at the university in about a months time and had never visited the city before. So we drove across the Pennies to Yorkshire. Obviously being a nice day I took my camera.

Geek Mouse Graffiti

Geek Mouse Graffiti

I can’t work out what this graffiti says. I know that the first letter is D and that there is a large mouse faced man with glasses looking a bit of a geek (hence my title). To me it doesn’t matter what it says, it really caught my eye as I wandered down this huge wall of graffiti or street art. If anyone has any information on what this says or who this character is I would love to read about it in the comments below. Could this possibly be a Spanish cartoon character that I don’t know about? This was taken in Barcelona back in 2008.
