Could Football Grounds Be Improved By Organised Street Art and Graffiti ? A Debate.


This is a serious suggestion. Many football grounds are actually relatively bland now and could do with a bit of organised decorating. I am sure many will disagree but the standards of graffiti art or street art are so high now that under some sort of supervision the inside and maybe the outside of grounds can be somewhat improved. Thoughts?

The street art might be football related of course and even reflect previous players.

As I travel around Europe there is an ever increasing amount of street art to see and some is extraordinary and in fact only rarely is it average or poor.

Lets have a debate over this topic.

Stockholm Paintings By Vincent Van B


There are many things to do and see in Stockholm and many sights that lend themselves to being painted. Here are a few examples from the city centre. Stockholm is a nice place for sure but a little bit of colour does not go amiss. 00001907

The Great Graffiti Art of Neuss


Neuss is the other side of the Rhine to Dusseldorf. It it takes your fancy you could swim across in 10 minutes. You may meet a few Rhine cruise boats coming your way, or the sight of industrial plants there may equally deter you. Nonetheless a walk along the Rhine banks on an early summer late afternoon in the sun cannot be a difficult task.

Over the Rhine there are many bridges, some carrying trains and others cars, but all decorated with fairly amazing graffiti art and a little graffiti too. It is a curious observation that those who choose graffiti as their communication tool rarely choose to deface the graffiti art. Even a burnt out mattress was to some extent “decorated” with graffiti art.

Watermans Car Park Brentford. Was this a request for supplies?

Paintings of Bergen in Norway


More paintings by the British artist Vincent Van B. Bergen sits on the Norwegian coast and I struggled to be captivated by it, in contrast to cities like Stavanger that have something special. Here are a few paintings designed to try and bring Bergen to life and light.

Few interesting turrets floating around. 000000450000005000000065

Are Employees trapped in their office near Watermans Centre Brentford?


A piece of graffiti seen on boxing day 2016 suggests that office workers may be trapped inside their office since Xmas. Their only hope was to paint graffiti on their windows and demand supplies. An insider however informs the blog that there was only enough paint to produce a single word. The word agreed upon was painted on the window. LAGER. Visitors to Brentford football club for their boxing day fixture against Brighton however seem not to have been in generous mood and no lager donations were spotted being provided. Little movement was seen in the offices as of late last night.
