Graffiti as art

(viewed 7630 times)
One morning, this fine burner appeared around the corner from me, a fairly rare thing in this well-off area. A few days later somebody, not necessarily the artist, attached this curator's note to it. Street as gallery space or a sneaky attempt to improve the work's chances of survival?

The note reads:

"Untitled III

"Artist Unknown

"Mural: Spraypaint on stone

"Circa, 2007, this piece confronts our assumptions of the conventional forms of spatial ownership and the use of the visible surface as part of our urban lexicon. The media chosen by the artist reflects his/her thinking on the process of making art, in this case choosing speed and discretion as the primary generatives influences. The selected location for the piece not only forms part of a wider artistic network or territory, but is also intended to make the immediate viewers more aware of the vast gap in aesthetics and values between this cultural island, and others in London's deverse archipelago."

Meaningful. I wonder if this is a standard graffito note downloaded from somewhere. The language is chosen to sound scholarly, but don't miss the content.

In the Chevy Tracker, a piece of sh*t detroit iron monster. Quite funny really. Except when the roof tried to fly off at 120km/h whilst overtaking on the Autopista. Caused a minor freak out that did.
