Nine Critiques from Dundee 5.

Billy and Bruce have adopted a new trade for the week...


Over the next week I'll be asking them the question


5. Graffiti

Art or crime?

Street art or vandalism?

Or a trendy fashionable upmarket product?

"I've known about Banksy's work but I have never really paid much attention to it, I got to look at his book WALL AND PIECE. I like his work, I much prefer seeing this kind of graffiti than advertising billboards around the city. I like to see murals on walls, it adds colour to a neighbourhood, like they do in Belfast. " Bruce

Most art we have encountered has been in an urban setting, but we discovered this road sign whilst driving down the A1 near the village of Shilbottle.
The artist responsible for this 'intervention' required a quick turn around, the only material used was a small piece of black insulating tape. No damage done.

The question is, is it art, or plain vandalism?
We dedicate this to our mate Chris Graham.

What about these road signs?
