Done or not done?

Words like classic, full of history and old are typical used to describe Oxford's city centre. For today's post I have chosen quite the opposite to all those words: some graffiti art on Cowley Road. In general I'm not a big fan, but in some cases artists do a great job in creating something special. I would like to know what you think about something "modern", like the creations above, in a city with so much history like Oxford. Do you like it, or is it "not done"?

Well, it IS the Cowley Road, and it does fit in with the general *feel* of it - it's not the greatest graffiti in the world, but it's not the worst and if tourists do visit it, it's not to see the dreaming spires, but to see an alternative side of Oxford. So all in all, I say it is *done* - just so long as it stays there and doesn't migrate to the city!
