This is a collection of wall art found in an underpass on a recent walking trip in southern Scotland. It was clearly designed and executed by primary school children.
What I find fascinating, is how much I can learn about the use of colour, symbols, and graphic design from these simple paintings. It’s the sort of thing an adult would take years struggling to assemble.
Skate parks are excellent places for spotting graffiti. In Carlisle, the park must have been around for some time, because the graffiti had a distinctly ‘layered’ look. Several years of spray painting have created some intriguing images.
