This made me smile. I found this rather super bit of graffiti in Norwich, on the side of a shop.
I don’t know when people began making stencilled grafitti, but I’m seeing more and more of it. The good side of that is that it tends to be very well executed, and usually, quite attractive. I suppose the downside is that it is really quick and easy to do. No standing there for several minutes with two or three different spray cans while you draw something freehand, just stick your stencil to the wall with a little duct tape, a quick spray or two, and you’re out of there.
Anyway, the ‘missing’ poster of Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man did make me smile. Renamed ‘Renaissance Man’, I can only assume it’s a comment on the general dumbing-down of … well, everything. Coined to describe the great thinkers of the Renaissance period who were extremely well-educated and skilled in many different fields, ‘Renaissance Man’ is certainly a rarity these days, though he does still exist.
I don’t think you’ll find him down the local nick, though.
