Tonight I watched Bomb It, an excellent documentary about grafitti art all over the world. It got me thinking about the street art I see around Winnipeg. The grafitti in West Broadway and Wolseley especially seem to carry social and political messages.
The photo of the wheat/pasted-message feature is something that appeared on the boarded-up facade of Pop Soda's on Portage Avenue several weeks ago. I can definitely get behind the message. It's a shame weather is taking its toll on some of the letters.
Another piece with a political message can be seen at almost every residential intersection along Wolseley Avenue and Westminster Street. Some particularly disgruntled citizen has appropriately added "Harper" below "STOP" on dozens of signs.
