ROADSIDE LEONARDO VINCI




I may not be rich or have an exhibition,
In the posh, downtown art gallery,
But my craze for colors is strong,
As is witnessed by all, those in vicinity!

Legal, illegal, I know not,
Nor do I care,
For me splashing colors,
Is, all that matters!

Each day on a new slab of wall,
I create my own masterpiece,
Passer-byes stop and stare, awed,
I’m their roadside Leonardo Vinci.

  3. A recent trip to Malaga, Spain opened my eyes to the beauty of street art/graffiti. Your poem is a lovely tribute to those who mean to embrace, not deface.

  6. I love art on walls, its a freedom to express and shouldn't be curbed plus a spray painted wall looks better than one filled with spit marks and lousy posters.

  14. Proper street art is as amazing as it gets. Some of the street graffiti which I view on the internet deserves to be in the famous art galleries. It is a shame that this art is considered illegal. Can art really be illegal?

    Nice poem. :)
