Street murals sure beat random graffiti...

I've posted at length before about the Kilburn High Road graffiti mural

Well, here is another on Kilburn Road - by the Lillie Langtry Pub just next to the Community Centre.

The really amazing thing about it is the cultural influence on the design.

I can't make my mind up on african, south american - does anyone out there have any tips or leads?

The mural is signed off by
"Solo One
ILC Crew
1999"

And it has the best tag line I have seen for a while:
"As long as we strive to succeed
We will always lead the way...."

Don't know if you have ever seen this website: Art of the State which shows different street art around London. Perhaps some up in Hampstead and Kilburn.

If you don't like random grafitti then perhaps this is for you...
