War Clown Army Graffiti

War Clown Army graffiti

I visited Graffiti Alley in Automobile Alley the other day and was surprised to see all the colorful graffiti painted over rather haphazardly. I posted a picture to Instagram and Twitter and @HomelessMee, who has since disappeared off the radar, responded that there was a graffiti war in the alley between a couple gangs. So, gone away is the graffiti zone, at least for now. It’s really too bad there was such a raucous. It didn’t help the graffitist’s cause or (in my opinion) cities’ needs for graffiti-by-permission zones.

Yesterday, I passed this graffiti on a Waste Management dumpster in The Paseo. I’ve seen the “Eat The Pigs” stencil on utility boxes before, but that was before I started regularly photographing graffiti. Let’s just say I’ve been on sabbatical. Ha! So, maybe Graffiti Wednesday has returned, but the Jennifer Chronicles are on an unexpected hiatus. Oh my gosh, that daily posting project started wearing me slick. Being a quitter on it makes me feel like I need to fire myself from my own blog. Maybe I’ll just write myself up.

So, what the heck is War Clown Army?

Who is Lu Dc HiC?

Eat the Pigs Graffiti

I did a little poking around and found a blog, Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army or CIRCA. Clever, eh? Not sure if it’s linked formally to this graffiti. CIRCA is a United Kingdom-based anti-authoritarian left-wing activist group that uses clowning and non-violent tactics to protest against the war, globalization and other issues. Sounds like a group that might have an affinity for graffiti.

Graffiti on utility boxes

Poor utility boxes. They take a beating. So does the United States Postal Service’s priority mail labels. They are a favorite among sticker bombers.

    I hadn’t been buy the Mad Dog Liquors here in Tulsa in a while. Last time I went there wasn’t much new there and you know something graffiti doesn’t age very well.

    I did have a Graffiti Wednesday of my own in early February. I was all excited cuz I saw my very first Yarn Bomb (http://www.yogis-den.com/2013/02/graffiti-wednesday-yarn-bombing-cains.html) I’m thinking the local yarn bombing group is planning a Saint Paddy’s day yarn bombing as well.
