In a similar respect to Stop A, here the alley provides an open amphitheatre perspective of illegal graffiti. On close inspection you can notice a thick layer of paint on nearly all surfaces, even those which are abrasive or heavily textured, and, although its heavily a contested space it creates a uniform feel from wall to wall.
As a graffiti artist becomes more and more exposed in these open areas, where his or hers chances of being observed are greater, there is an inclination for his or hers message to exist in a much more generalised nature. That is, without the crude or pornographic emphasis often found in toilet blocks or places of entire privacy. Is this a sign of graffiti changing its approach in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience?
