Neal's Yard Street Art
Art in the most unexpected places. Someone stuck fridge word magnets to the side of a building in Neal’s Yard. Only a few people had started added poetry with the words. I remember being in New York years ago and seeing the work of mosaic man up the lamp and street posts - gorgeous mosaics with colorful cracked pottery and the Shadow man, another NY artist who used to spray the shadowy outlines of people on random walls. Some might say it is graffiti, but I think it's an inventive form of expression and makes people think twice. Is there any unusual street art where you live?
