Might As Well

One of my favourite local street artists is out and about again. I don’t know what his real name is but I call him Mr. Inspirational.

Someone said to me on the weekend that you get what you settle for, but I often think that you settle for what you get.

Either way, it doesn’t hurt to do this as often as you can –

I think Mr. Inspirational is trying to tell me something.

Might as well just do it….

    There is some really good street art in Sydney. if I was a better photographer I would do a book about it. I just love it. The places to go to really see some FAB stuff are London and New York – absolutely awesome. And it is like poetry!

    KAREN,
    Yeah, baby, yeah 😆

    PATTIKEN,
    Oh, yes. It’s the only way. I need Mr. Inspirational to put up another sign for me, however, that says – ‘Follow through. Follow through!’

    GABRIELLE,
    He has done a few really nice things usually involving one word – Imagine, Believe – and so on. It IS inspiring!

    I like that too. When you see one word as you’re walking along it really stays with you. It is quite inspiring!

    MELEAH,
    Me too. Good to get a bit of inspiration in the day!

    MAGS,
    It really does. It certainly got me thinking!!

    FRANCES,
    Hey. What’s up? So great to hear from you. I love hearing all about New York via your blogs. So cool. Big waves to you too!!

    GERALDINE,
    Amazing to think you are having a heatwave when it is a tad chilly here. I love that word too – definitely one of my faves!!

  3. I love street art!

    Our current mayor is at war with graffiti, and as such, there is wonderful, legitimate and in one case, even city-funded, street art being obliterated. Street art and graffiti – particularly tagging – are different things. But I expect our mayor’s office is also making an attack on the subversive, anti-establishiment, ‘think for yourself’ messages inherent that much street art entails.

    Aspire on, sister!

    I definitely think the element of subversion is being targeted as much as the street art. A lot of people don’t like it. I’m not a fan of the meaningless tagging. It just makes an ugly building look uglier. But the well-considered, well-placed word or mural are things I love. It upsets me when they get painted over. But then I guess the artists have a clean canvas to write something else!
