Wall poetry

It always catches my eye when I arrive to Amsterdam by train: the poem on the wall of the Batavia flat. It was only until now, when I looked for it, that I could read the complete poem, written by Gerrit Kouwenaar. The train moves just too fast.. Read the whole poem here.

While looking for more wall poetry, I came across the work of Anna Garforth. For her project Grow, she went looking for hidden, wild spaces in London, where she applied moss based graffiti. A beautiful alternative for the usual graffiti, I'd say.
