Street Art in Craiova Romania


Craiova, Romania’s 6th largest city and capital of Dolj County, is situated near the east bank of the river Jiu in central Oltenia. The population of 300,000 makes it the same size as Iceland. It lies around 145 miles from Bucharest.

There are many things to see and do in Craiova however the street art does not mentioned in any of the official  websites.

Here are a few examples of what can be found downtown in craiova.

The Man Who Jumped Out Of A Painting In Craiova Romania. Some Of The Best Street Art


Craiova is a city around 4 hours drive from Bucharest in Romania. Some of the street art there is incredible and I will do a full article on that with photos, but here as an example we have a painting on the end of a row of buildings from which a casual passer by seems to have jumped out of the painting. Maybe he has. IMG_2640

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.

Is this Hunter and The Bear Graffiti Art in Glasgow


Anyone who follows my blog, and why would you not, will know my latest interest is photographing around Europe Graffiti Art. I will be posting a lot about Hunter and The Bear in the next few days, but this graffiti art shot from a couple of months ago in Glasgow caught my eye tonight. Could it just be Hunter and The Bear graffiti art?

Hunter and The Bear Graffiti art?

Camden Graffiti Art is Beyond Brilliant


Any followers of my blog will know I value graffiti and graffiti art where it is used sensibly and sensitively. In general terms Europe has seemed superior in their graffiti ability until recently. Some superb graffiti in an alley way in Merton was published a little while ago, and here are some simple photographs of graffiti on walls outside The Barfly in Camden, seen as the crowds of teen girls excited from a Charley Marley gig in Chalk Farm Road. Please enjoy and feel free to share this and the blog.

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.

What else is there in Brentford apart from the football club?


Brentford is a town in middlesex not really known for anything but over the last year became fairly well known in the media for their football related antics. The Warburton issue reached the media followed by the discussion over Matthew Benham and his vision of football being matched with mathematical modelling to replicate the success of his own company SmartOdds.

However what else is there in Brentford? Brentford might be regarded as the gateway to the M4 motorway, or local even to Kew Gardens. However not so many are aware that Brentford sits on the River Thames. Fewer will be aware that the Watermans Centre provides a venue for cinema and drama. Even fewer are aware that the graffiti that covers the walls of the car park in the Watermans Car Park must rate as some of the best in London.
