#R2BC Friday’s #GoodNews

To many graffiti can be a blight on the landscape, a sign of urban decay, vandalism and pure boredom. I have long been a fan of street art. Murals, and quality graffing are a joy when done properly.

It is important to separate genuine graffiti art from badly scrawled tags you see done on random bits of wall. The importance of separating the humour of an artist like banksy, from the poor scrawl of a bored teenager and a paint can. With this in mind, my favourite story today is, from the North of Oxford where, a local community using talented artists to create murals to cover up tags and to turn dark and foreboding places into something far brighter.

Hope you find a little brightness this weekend.
