This week's theme is sarcasm and irony--where the meaning is hidden beneath the surface. Today's Art and Beauty Tuesday comes from Leake Street in London and is done by the street artist Banksy. The image below is of a man spraying over the ancient "graffiti" found in a French cave--one of the oldest works of art ever found.
In "cleaning up" the "graffiti", the man is really painting over a precious work of art, and, thus, the unexpected nature of irony. Even our best intentions sometimes fall short of the mark.
