Popularly known as the John Lennon wall,
this is an extensive area entirely given
over to graffiti in Prague's Mala Strana
district, on the left bank of the Vltava. I
suppose the thinking went that if the
authorities gave the artists an entire wall
to play with that they'd be less inclined to
disfigure Prague with unsightly graffiti
elsewhere. Der. Well, that didn't work
then, but at least the historic centre of
Prague (and there's more history here than you can shake a whole bunch of sticks at)
is largely graffiti-free. There are some skilled artists around who indulge in this sort of
display, who in another life might have been a Kandinsky or a Paul Klee, but who
choose to exercise their undoubted talents in a different, not always apppreciated
manner. But I'm coming to like a lot of it, when it's not just crude paint-spraying. I
hope somebody somewhere is curating some of this 'now' art-form, a lot of which is
far superior to the 'art' that finds its way into the Tate Gallery these days, for
instance. Difficult to move a wall, though, thank God.
