    There was an amazing Xenx piece at the 2006 Hub Festival. I'll dig out some photos when I get a moment.

    Well, yes, Matchstick Man, but it also looks there's a swastika in there too.

    Yes, I think it's a reversed swastika. I've seen a couple of genuine symbols around on walls, but I haven't seen one incorporated into a picture like this. It's just a pic of graffiti to me.

    Islington (between petrol station and Gildart street).
    The paint has run on this example of stencil art, but I can still make out the image of Winston Churchill ?
    I see stencil art all over the place, but I wonder if they are all unique...I don't think I've seen the same image in two different locations.

    Hey, thought I'd post this here since its loosely grafitti related..

    Does anyone know the story behind those faces on the pink plates dotted around the place? I'll get a photo sometime, but its a white face (that looks a bit like the KFC colonel) pulling tongues on a pink diamond-shaped plate type thing.

    I've found one on Arrad Street (that side street off Hope Street), one by the Choices and Tescos on Smithdown Road, and two by the railway bridge that crosses over Smithdown just by the Mystery.

    If anyone knows anything about them please tell me. It's been bothering me for ages.

    Pete Doherty stencil (public footpath that runs to the rear of Kenyon Road). I was going to snap the John Lennon, Penny Lane stencil but it has been painted over since last week.

    Hi Drone

    It rather looks like Banksy's style, doesn't it? I know he has just come out with a book. I wonder if this design might be in it?

    All the best

    I think Banksy always leaves the 'Banksy' stencil name on his.

    Stanhope Street/Grafton Street. This looks like Sid james to me. There were plans to demolish the terraced houses and build on them, and the grassy patch of land. Plans were refused a couple of months ago.
    There is another graphic on the side of the sub-station for anyone interested.

    Very interesting, marky. Yes I would be interested in seeing the other graphic on the side of the sub-station if you are able to photograph it. Thanks in advance!

    This seems to be the answer on this one:

    "Puma stencil graffiti, London
    Puma gave away a cat stencil and a protective glove - soon their cat logo was to be found all over London."

    See http://www.artofthestate.co.uk/Graff...encil_puma.htm

    In my opinion, graffiti is art, these people put their whole heart and soul into some of their creations and get slaughtered for it by the BTP or the Police. They shouldn't be getting punished because 'it looks bad for the city', Liverpool is the capital of culture for gods sake, there are some amazing graffiti artists in our city...they're the urban culture...It's ART!

    Default Garston Graffiti

    You get a better class of graffiti in Garston !!! Here's an example actually carved into the sandstone rather than the ubiquitous spray paint job.

    New artwork is being sprayed today (they started yesterday), at Strand Street/Mann Island (near Walk the Plank Ship). It was a bit foggy, for my camera, but I'll see what I've got later.

    A few recent ones:
    Rear of old Letters Hotel, Duncan Street/St. James' Street (done at the week-end)
    Grafton Street/Stanhope Street (still being worked on today)
    Old Windsor Street School (there is also a small mosaic at the bottom of the road safety railings, for those who haven't spotted it yet).
