I actually totally disagree with this, I love grafitti and often stop to read it, or find myself distracted in loos by the gems on the cubicle walls. Is that weird? If people want to say something enough to write it, in amongst loads of crap, there’s often an entertaining read – like the internet I suppose! I think lots of people are made smile by clever, or just gorgeous bits of grafitti.
My friend Jess & I saw ‘OH SHIT! LONDON’ written on a club toilet wall during a little era of mischief, followed by the ever-fabulous Smiths ‘here is London ‘home of the brash, outrageous and free’, in Camden a few weeks later. Both of which became our London mantras for a good while.
