Artist's Description

Part of ’Sydney’s Abandoned Tramyard Series’
Lest I be misinterpreted as condoning vandalism in the street or public property, this series is just to illustrate that there could be beauty in what the world sometimes perceives as ugly, or illegal, or dangerously too edgy. Graffiti art is something that the youth of today (and for a long time now), has embraced as their own self-expression and art, a sub-culture of alternative art that can be found in all parts of the world. Not surprisingly, whether you are in Sydney, in the UK, parts of the USA or Asia, there is a kind of art and writing whose style is universal and very distinct. Yes, am so amazed, that in different places of the world, the style of graffiti art looks somewhat the same. Do these artists talk to each other or follow a convention like the internet IP address? (Please take notice in your next trip:-) I love the natural and unforced creativity that these unrecognised artists exemplify.

Graffiti Artist of the Street
As I stand here amazed at your work
I marvel at your genius.
You go in the night
With your cans of coloured spray
Not a care, no baggage, having fun,
No desire for recognition
But creativity birthing from within….
I see your masterpiece now,
Oh you beautiful soul,
Yes, you show me what art is.. .
