Kapitalism - Euro Capitalism

Reactions: 

Money and the power - a nice paraphrase of the power of comunism under the new era of capitalism and euro/money.


Kapitalism
Lack of money is the root of all evil. --George Bernard Shaw Money is power, & you ought to be reasonably ambitious to have it. --Russell H. Conwell, Temple Univ, 1877
Money can't buy friends. But you can afford a better class of enemy. --Lord Mancroft
While money can't buy happiness, it certainly lets you choose your own form of misery.
While money doesn't buy love, it puts you in a great bargaining position.

Spring is here

Reactions: 
I've decided to break the regular flow of images of graffiti, and bring a real spring sign here:

Violet iris
Iris is the Greek name for "rainbow", thanks to the multiple colours that it can have.

Vincent van Gogh has painted quite a few of famous irises.

You can find the iris on the coats of arms of a few royal families: Florence, House of Capet, Brussels and Ukraine to name a few.

More details you can find as well at its dedicated wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iris_(plant).

Or you can read about it here: The Gardener's Iris Book

No more stealing

Reactions: 

Are you upset with how much some steal? With "some" you can think of almost anybody, but I would suggest to go with politicians and the great business men that started with some interesting initial funding...

My Band - efficient advertising I would say

Reactions: 
This kind of graffiti is quite efficiently used also for advertising. I have found a few in my trip around the city, and here is a first one:


Too bad there is nothing at the address - just some tracking code in the page source...

Run for Love

Reactions: 
Not sure if this was meant to show the repeatable chase of the perfect woman that each man goes through, or if this is just a sports contest that a lady is watching, or maybe just an indication that the direction is not right (the upper arrow). Either way, a quite nice drawing:

Intro - Pirated edition

Reactions: 
Bucharest has a special flavour, and is really a not-to-miss capital city of Europe. You either love it or hate it, but you won’t be indifferent to it.
People love it for the old architecture and heavy history, for the turbulent night life and the day rush, for the nice people or the crazy ones. Or hate it for the same reasons.
I will only capture a small piece of it here: graffiti stencils collected in the last few years. One per day, so that you don’t get too overwhelmed.
I also welcome new additions – from Bucharest, but also from other cities if you can specify the city.
Here is the first one:
