save grafiti 585x377 Save the Graffiti!

If you see graffiti on public property, chances are that within a week, it will be covered up by that awkward shade of gray paint that they paint over graffiti with universally.

What makes graffiti different from any other works of art? If there is a plain wall, why not add some spice?

Notorious English graffiti artist, Banksy, likes to make a statement by showing that graffiti is art.

Banksy’s latest stunt has brought him to the Bristol Museum, where his work has taken over the entire exhibit and has added his own flair to the pieces of fine art.

0 Save the Graffiti!

By creating masterpieces in the most unlikely ways and the most unlikely places, Banksy advocates the new age of individualism in art. High-ups in the art world are starting to see Banksy’s masterpieces for what they are and his art (and the walls they’re featured on) can sell for over 200 million £!

Celebrities love him. Civilians love him. Walls appreciate the additional attention.

The Verdict:
Take a stroll around the block in Bristol to observe Banksy’s wall art.

Otherwise, take a stroll around the block in your town and instead of scowling at the writing on the walls, think about what the artist was trying to convey!

Trying my hand with spray paint and a blank wall,

The Quibbler

    I love graffiti! Whenever I take a trip through Downtown St. Louis, I see a lot of graffiti that is usually quite good and not just gang related. It’s refreshing. It gets boring seeing the same bland buildings over and over again.

    I need to admit that that is one great insight. It certainly provides an organization the chance to get in on the bottom floor and actually take part in creating one thing special and tailor-made to their needs.

    The Nexus One uses an Adreno 200 GPU which is the weakest GPU among the high-end Android smartphones. The Droid 1 has a PowerVR SGX GPU, the same kind the iPhones have, and it’s much faster than the Adreno 200. If you’re going to compare against the iPhone 4 (PowerVR SGX 535), use a phone with hardware more on par with that phone. The Droid X/Droid 2 use the PowerVR SGX 530, the Galaxy S phones use the PowerVR SGX 540, and the Desire HD and G2 use the Adreno 205 which is close to the performance of the PowerVR SGX 540.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
