i really like graffiti when it’s more than just someone’s name, or some lone bubble letter expletive. when a person tags a piece of property, they have some message to share with the world, and i appreciate it when this message makes me look at something in a different way. this is what the artist banksy does. his galleries are the street, his canvas the buildings. the art is for everyone, and his graffiti can be spotted in a lot of cities worldwide. many people are familiar with banksy because when people find his tags, they post it online. he leaves us imagining the possibility of turning the corner and seeing something like this.

the messages with knitting graffiti aren’t as specific. it’s just fun and makes us look at every day items–trees, bikes, phone booths, in a different, warm and fuzzy light.
