A photoblog with pictures I've taken of graffiti and street art in Moscow (and anywhere else I happen to travel).

Political graffiti

All of these photos are from the alleyway leading to Tochka at Leninsky Prospekt 6 and were taken on the afternoon of June 4:

The message on the left, transliterated, reads "FSB FAK OF," but in English that would look like "FSB F**k off."

The message in red reads, "No to Uncle Pootie!" I doubt the writer knows that "Pootie-poot" was written about as being one of George W. Bush's nicknames for the Russian president.


PS I am posting this from the Shanghai Library. We're spending a week in Shanghai to attend the wedding of an old friend of mine. For a city of well over 10 million, there is surprisingly little graffiti here, although I've found a few bits that I'll post later on.

Madley, thanks. I wish I had been able to find more graf in Shanghai, I really won't have more than one or two pictures to post here as the city (the parts of it I saw, at least) seemed remarkably free of graffiti.

Anonymous, I've updated my template to include my contact email address - lyndon [dot] allin [at] gmail [dot] com - in the sidebar. Hopefully you're looking to contact me with some good photos or tips on where I can photograph some interesting walls.
