Graffiti and Rust Sometimes I like the juxtaposition of other materials (derelict frames, decaying wood, rust etc.) which can often enhance, inentionally or otherwise, the impact of graffiti.  Here the rusting metal door provides an interesting context to the art-work.

Love it or hate it, graffiti can be, undeniably, eye-catching. Here the colours and text seemed to evoke a painterly quality to the overall scene. The derelict, moss-covered wall and vegetation seemed to complement the graffiti, rather than the other way round.
