Freda hughes has been archiving our city’s street art for donkies now. We asked her to select the five choicest cuts from the summers just gone.
Street art and graffiti reveal a subculture beyond the organised structures of our society. The interplay between the artist and the city fascinates me, as does the artists’ acceptance of the transience and public ownership of their art. These pictures are just a small sample of the illegal and transient artwork that adorn our city streets.
