Employees must wash Hands after doing…WHAT?


Stanford Men’s Bathroom Art

In my time at Stanford, I have seen some of the most fascinating, profound, thought-provoking, and hilarious bathroom graffiti of my life. This piece is one of the less cerebral contributions to the repository of high art and culture that is the Stanford Main Quad restrooms.
Seen in Pigott Hall, Building 260 (Language department) of Stanford’s Main Quad. Author and paint substance unknown.


Kook Both Ways

Is this an example of the city’s attempts to keep its Yiddish-speaking citizens safe when they cross the street (“Kook” is Yiddish for “Look,” the usual word spray-painted in SF crosswalks)…or a graffiti artist’s commentary on the eccentricity of San Francisco’s citizenry?
Seen on Folsom St. in the Mission.


Gandhi, Defaced

Seen in Wiese Alley in the Mission District of San Francisco. Not sure if the vandal doesn’t like Gamdhi, or just wanted a place to tag.


Rest stop toilet sign

Embellished sign, outside a highway rest stop toilet in northern WA… incidentally, the shortest, skimpiest restroom walls I’ve ever seen. Anti-cruising measure?


Stay Gay! SF’s Eagle Bar sprouts Critical Graffiti Wall – Big Slide Show

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It has been  a few weeks now since the SF Eagle closed its doors. No bikes out front, no men inside, chained shut, it sits empty. But not silent. Its walls speak. In several languages, actually. Graffiti farewells and protests decorate the outside of the once vibrant gathering place. What comes next, no one knows.
