    What I find interesting is not only the monkey street art, the drain pipe you composed in the photo. The pipe adds to the photo actually as the monkey is painted on a street wall. Has this wall been painted over or washed as to removing street art? Are there any laws against graffiti and/or street art there? How do the street artists treat each other and each other’s art?

    There is a campaign in our area, at a nearby large city, against graffiti. Any street art or graffiti is considered dangerous because of the messages left or implied by gang members. So, any street art or graffiti is painted over and artists pursued for prosecution.

    Hi Anna
    Graffiti is against the law, and there is a campaign to catch those who deface underground trains and stations. The attitude of graffiti artists to each other is very very interesting, they will admire a well painted tag then immediately paint over it 🙂 Spoke to one young man who had flown from Germany to London to paint his tag on a wall under the South Bank centre (I have previously posted several shots of the area), I asked him if he appreciated that his tag (which had taken several hours to paint, was likely to be covered by another tag in less than 24 hours, he shrugged and said it didn’t matter, all that was important was his tag had appeared on the wall.

    Google :Banksy, Can Festival, Leak Street. Banksy whose work is bought for $100,000s did a couple of works for the Can Festival, within less than a month they were covered by several layers of paint.
