The three graffiti pieces Flower, Tubes and Ornament are all attempts to create graffiti pieces that neither contain letters nor outlines, but still graffiti. Whether I succeeded or not, is a subjective matter. Flower is painted in Vanløse around Ålekistevej.

 

Postludium
The 18th of may 2006 I received this email: "When I was 6-7 years old I lived with my parents in Vanløse. We lived right across this graffiti piece of art. I spent much time standing in the staircase looking out of the glass at the graffiti piece, while I tried to grasp what was depicted. When I turned 7, I finally realized that it was a flower and that it was graffiti like the big paintings on a wall by Vanløse station. I can't remember why I've suddenly come to like graffiti, but I guess the flower is the reason."

Inas, 16 years old.

 

That's sure something, that warms the heart of an old graffiti painter.
