The writing is on the wall



I was walking around town one morning and stumbled upon this school.   Judging from the scale of the graffiti, this was not a hurried-spray in the dark action, but rather the work of a commissioned or condoned artist.   I applaud the approval of public spaces to be used as canvases by modern age craftsmen.  For some it may be an eye-sore, but it brightens dull cement facades and allows passer-bys to reflect upon the images as one would during a visit to a museum.

All in all, DON’T become another brick in the wall!

  1. First time I listen to Pink Floyd was in 1973 when the album “Dark side of the moon” was released – since I have collected all their albums even from the 60s – and been travelling for many concerts all over Europe – in Essen too… 🙂
