Urban canvases

I'm interested in the textures of cities and and am always on the look out for interesting urban 'canvases'. Here are some pictures I took recently in Dublin (near the U2 recording studios).  I'm interested in the combination of the hand drawn (or hand sprayed) with more formal graphical elements such as signage. Within the urban landscape there are two levels of expression taking place simultaneously - the formal communication of official signage, and the informal, personal proclamations in the graffiti type.
