Brussels graffiti

This may be a bit off-topic, but I found so much interesting street art in such a small area when I was in Brussels a couple of weeks ago that it seems worthy of sharing. All of these photos were taken in the general vicinity of Avenue Louise at Stephanie Square. I was pleased to find in Brussels all of the same forms of graffiti/street art that one finds anywhere else - elaborate throw-ups, simpler tags, stickers (which I liked better than any I've ever seen before), and stencil graffiti.

VIP tag (closeup), 2:13pm, March 15. I was surprised to see a tag
like this in Brussels - I would have expected to see something
like this in Moscow, where the term "VIP" is used and abused
by way too many service providers and establishments.


Stencil graffiti - looks like organs to me - on a sign, 2:20pm, March 15.
