    Wow, Christopher! This “radiates”! It radiates outward and pulls one in at the same time. Has a univeral feel to it. It’s got it, color, depth, great designing, and yes…there’s love, too. Excellent!

  • thank you so much AJ this image bothered me for a long time. Someone creating art under a bridge in a very small town (Mylor) for noone to see. It seemed like – crying out for attention. I would love to be able to encourage anyone with an artistic intention to shine and art is so much bigger than an individual or their piece. I really appreciate your comment :)))

    i think sometimes the underside of life need to be colored and given light..and i hope that someday cities and towns all over is designate space for graffiti art..;) i do think it is so cool ..( when it is not destructive to someones space..) i love the colors and the energy of this ..great work christopher.:)xx

  • terri i appreciate your comment more than you can imagine. This image and topic strikes at the core of acceptance and love for me. Whom ever created this art hasnt been recognised as an artist, in their own mind possibly as an individual – why would someone practice their art this way if they were appreciated? Dislocation ambiguity loss of connection – I think community, identity recognition and self love are so important, i wish this art didnt have to be under a bridge – i appreciate your comment :) xx

    I love how you’ve taken what you’ve seen, thought about the implications of it all and made it even more eye catching and beautiful. Well done Sir P-S :)

  • mz J …. i thank you!!! and i am so pleased that you saw what you did from this image. you got it!!!!!! xx

    – Christopher Birtwistle-Smith

  • Mz J ….looking at your comments again, i think that you have really captured what i wanted to say. i took the graffiti and enlarged it to encompass the full image because art is so much bigger than what it was under a bride. art is as large as life! thank youxxx
