Urban: David C. Benson
Urban aka Urban (Culture) - Urban culture is the culture of towns and cities. In that culture there is the use of graffiti (i.e. images or lettering scratched, scrawled, painted or marked in any manner on property.) Graffiti or tagging is now a common expression of the urban artist. Some believe it is a destruction of property, others appreciate the use of burned out buildings or open concrete spaces as the urban artists canvas. I appreciated the use of the "Jack-O-Lantern" in this spray painted signature, while driving around downtown Denver on our Halloween holiday. It was truly appropriate and festive!
