A graffitist finds a place

Quirky and bizarre graffiti in Port of Spain, Trinidad

The graffiti artist, Colin Gill has finally found a place which complements his
quirky and bizarre work. The black and white graphic icon is painted on a wall which is enclosed to a plot of land that is in the process of some sort of construction. The work has a poetic resonance as the mounts of gravel and land clearing gives the installation a beauty in its panoramic view.

Previously, Gill's attempt on street art as a form of public expression had failed because his abstract paintings looked gimmicky, and it seemed to compete in territory with other graffiti artists.
