More streetart .
Perhaps it has been here for some time, but I have not noticed it before I passed it on my bike.

I wonder what on earth it means? And I also wonder what purpose it serves.

I quite like the form of it, and the presentation of it, but any meaning that I try to give to it makes me quite uncomfortable.

Firstly, it appears to be a representation of Hitler. Hitler growing out of the earth, which i can accept. However, Hitler as a flower, when a flower represents beauty, I find a challenge. But a Hitler who accuses passers-by of being conformists ... The assumption is that being a conformist is not good. Hitler was not a conformist. Therefore, Hitler was good.

That is how this piece of graffit unravells itself to me. And I do not agree with that.

As a talking point ... as a provocation to thought ... maybe it serves a purpose.

I am just as confused as Julie . . .

Signé "Jozef" (Staline ?)

I think Julie has a point here, this graffiti is a bit unnerving... Maybe this what exactly what the artist was looking for!

This is quite a strange message.

Does make sense to the artist who did it. But not much to me, I'm afraid. But... I like it!

Looks like Adolf to me. It's a bit controversial of course, but as street art I kinda like this one.
