This is an amazing idea. Artistic graffiti is beautiful and wonderful, but simple questions like these can be so powerful and visceral for the people who see them, regardless of how they’d normally feel about art or vandalism. I usually use chalk.

  1. Excellent. There are plenty of these quotes throughout Melbourne as well. They’re less like questions, though, such as “THINK”, “WE ARE YOU”, etc. The best one is in the main train station in the city: “DO NOT SPIT”. I wish it worked…
