    Some people don't like a blank space, so give in to the urge to fill it. In Northern Ireland, blank walls are used to promote political messages. Personally, I think it's vulgar in public, but I should enjoy having a mural on my sitting room wall....a nice woodland scene would be very relaxing.

    Murals done right can be attractive to a city, but graffiti, is just, graffiti.

    There is a distinct difference between mindless graffiti and art. Just one of many examples to be found the world over.

    Is that a house in the French Quarters of New Orleans? Of course first and only time I was there was in 1970 and PG with second kid. It was not a pleasant time, I do recall they loved graffiti.
