Street Art of Amman

I love street art. These are my findings from Amman with some great Banksy quotes.

to learn to draw?”

IMG_2214“Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don’t come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile while they’re having a piss.”
Banksy, Banging Your Head Against a Brick Wall

IMG_2211IMG_2212IMG_2213“Imagine a city where graffiti wasn’t illegal, a city where everybody could draw whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall – it’s wet.”
Banksy, Wall and Piece
