framing suggestion:
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.
