Russell raised this question a while ago
Walking down Shoreditch way on Saturday, I saw this.
Not sure i've changed my mind, even with a real artist involved.
What you think?
For me? Urban spam. Where’s the relevance. If it ain’t relevant, all the rest is spam (imho).
This is Times Square coming to a street near you, isn’t it?
And look what they’ve had to end up doing there in the most pointless arms race in history:
Spam, spam, spam, spam, spam.
And like real spam, it gives me the shits.
if spam is created in an interesting and tasty way, it can be delightful, kinda like spam musubi.
Spam. Nice try though but stupidly misunderstood rules or ‘rools’ of grafitti etiquette. Annoying actually!
can’t believe everyone is so anti it? I’m sure it’s not hugely relevant but thin is much when it comes to billboards?
I think it’ll stand out which is half the challenge and I can’t see it taking off, but us talking about it proves to some extent it’s working
Kelvin – your right up to a point – but ‘half the challenge’ is not about standing out anymore. We are talking about it for the wrong reasons if that makes sense.
spam. feels like marketing companies trying to slip in under the radar and buy credibility. it’s not public art if it’s trying to sell you something.
