The wealth of graffiti that lines Hackney's streets provides a sense of vibrancy and individuality to the otherwise generic, run down environment. Graffiti culture is an important part of the artistic community here and is very much celebrated by residents and tourists alike.
Council policy however, considers all forms of graffiti - regardless of its aesthetic value - as vandalism, resulting in its obliteration. Through this poster I wish to generate public support for a change of policy by highlighting the importance of community participation in decisions affecting the decoration of our public streets.
