>The Curious Incident of the Painted Cows

For some reason local p**s artists painted local cows! Their work shows a distinct lack of imagination using only white paint (will it be magnolia next time?) and showing nothing of the flair of Banksy’s work. An advertising slogan could be “Milk is good for you” – but then, on the other flank (as suggested by friend Ceri) – “but Guinness is better”.

>The writing’s on the wall


The longest piece of graffiti was over 4000 characters long and made by a student in the toilets of his college in China in 1915. (To do list – order extra nitromors and rubber gloves). The artist went on to be founder of the People’s Republic of China. He was known as Chairman Mao.

Nobody knows much about Banksy though, except that he is a Bristol born artist. He has become famous by people not knowing who he is. Nice irony – as is most of his work.

“People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish ……… but only if it is done properly.”
