    I see a lot of creative art in and around Stafford.

    Whatever you consider to be art, in Stafford, post it here.

    I will start us off, here's 'Question Me'

    Another which shows the variety we have, but in this instance had, is this poster, sadly removed after several years of being taped to a post.

    This was taken a number of months ago, i'm glad I photographed it.

    Nobody has mentioned treebeard? there's a face carved into the tree by the River Sow, before going under the Riverway bridge.

    Personally speaking, I think that regardless of whether the artist has talent or not is irrelevant.

    Violating other people’s property is egotistical, discourteous and self indulgent.

    That isn't peaceful it's scribble, painted illegally onto other people's property by vandals who should be found and prosecuted, not admired.

    While I'm sure you're right ... there are times when you see something and can't help but say: "Wow that's really good ... !!"

    The difference is, looking at the premises they commissioned that. Would it look so good with badly sprayed infowars.com on it.

    A faded Circus poster, wrapped around a telegraph pole, looks, to you, like vandalism?

    Looks to me like most of the squares on this thread need to take a chill pill
