We were out and about and I saw this:
I started to explain to the kids the history behind it, and my daughter suddenly announced "It's graffiti. It's bad!*". I replied, 'It's not graffiti, it's in chalk'.
However, it got me wondering, is it graffiti? I seem to have this idea, that chalk is fine because of the non permanence of the medium. However, a quick google told me otherwise. Even hopscotch is graffiti. The difference between street art and graffiti is permission.
Would you have classed my photo as graffiti? Would you class hopscotch as graffiti?
Linking up with #WWU and later #WeekendRewind
*Given where we live, my love of street art, and our constant discussions on the merits of works we visit, I have no idea where this attitude comes from.
