5. The Writing on the Wall
Writing, in the previous blog, about those memories of significant graffiti reminded me of one other: this, high on a wall in Copenhagen in, I think, 2005.
I like the grand scale: it's quite high up, and clearly it's been done with a roller brush. Hard to tell exactly where it was done from, too. Above, beside, or below. All would present difficulties. Such a grand stage for such a trivial announcement. Then again, that's what the majority of billboards are: declamatory, monumental and irrelevant. At least this is a little subversive, and wears its loopy heart on its sleeve.
