Bad-ass graffiti

 

Ever so often I find one of those books that makes me reassess what I think art is and why the world would be a better place if we weren’t so hoity toity about the artistic and cultured.

And for all the graffiti art and artists we worship and hold on a pedestal, there are the Scott Hocking ‘Bad Graffiti’ kind, who I am grateful to for keeping it real.

I have never been able to draw my whole life. And if I ever were a graffiti artist, this is what my work would look like.
And probably yours too.

My favorite is the one above, which Hocking calls – Fuck you on Wheels.

Sometimes bad is just plain bad. But at other times it’s endearingly so.
