Who’s a sucker for stencil graffiti?

Stencil graffiti detail

Not such a fan of indiscriminate tagging; about as creative as a dog marking territory, says I. But, graffiti can be visually and mentally stimulating — the stencils of Banksy for example. The tentacles-and-wave stencil, pictured above, and below has survived for years, in the alley on the North side of West Broadway, near the cross-street of Columbia. I don’t know if it borrows from any actual Japanese woodblock prints, but, I think the use of woodblock style is sly, and appropriate, and cool. It makes me smile, and think every time I see it.
