When I saw your first message, lemni, I thought you were greeting me in some new way! I thought “Maybe this is the person from Finland who looks at my blog sometimes!” 🙂
What a coincidence, I posted some photos of C215’s work in London recently and one of the subjects of the stencils was the homeless man in your first photo!
Good morning, andBerlin. I love it when someone like you adds to my knowledge, through their comments! Thank you for telling us about C215. I found many sites with information about him, through a search. Here is just one link: vimeo.com/24643548
I just went to have a look at your blog, andBerlin, and really liked what you had posted about this artist! Go have a peek, folks: http://andberlin.com/
Thanks for checking out my blog and posting a link. C215 consistently produces art of the highest quality and puts across an important message. I’m glad you like his work. Check out AliCé for a similar style.
The other one who seems intriguing (one of the works is the 2nd photo), uses the tag “Empty Inside”. Have you run across any of his/hers, andBerlin??
I don’t recognise it, I’m sorry. I’ve tried google as well but nothing is jumping out at me.
Interesting history of the Maneki Neko, yta.. I had often wondered.. but never quite gotten round to Googling.. will enhance my enjoyment in seeing them in folks’s windows xxx
I’ve photographed that cat too and am happy to learn what it is!
I never did go into that shop, Annie, not even to see if there was a cat there.
One some occasions, I find graffiti interesting, amusing and thought provoking. The other 99% I would like to kick in the a$&.

Like the rest of you, I don’t mind some of this graffiti, except when it’s scrawled on the ancient buildings of Italy in general, and Venice in particular.
I agree with you Yvonne….I also like graffiti. I always end up taking photos of it. (but I’d hate to see it take over beautiful monuments…)
And that last one really isn’t graffitti…it’s a lucky cat…I have one on the shelf in my living room so I don’t think it counts as graffitti.
They (the cats) have a name but I can’t remember what it is.

Thank you, lemni! And, thanks to you, I found many links on my best friend Google! 🙂
Here is one site: http://www.onmarkproductions.com/html/maneki-neko.shtml
I know lots of people don’t like graffiti, but I do – most of it that is.
