Cross-stitch graffiti: it says, “People over profit”

01 Jan Cross-stitch graffiti: it says, “People over profit”

Sarah Corbett writes: So it looks like I am getting hooked on doing cross stitch graffiti pieces! This is my first xstitch graffiti piece I did in Liverpool, UK. I did it at 2am on a Monday in the centre of Liverpool: Wood Street. I thought, being so early on a Monday it was perfect timing because no one would be around. But I was wrong, there were drunken people and people still ready to party. Scousers are hardcore!

I’m not sure if I like this one and if I would do it again. I did the ‘Love smells unless you act’ image as well in Liverpool (Roscoe Street) because I like the look of it. I’ve online pharmacy best prices been criticised for the fact that you can’t understand what it says but I still like the look of it and the colours involved (white, red and brown) and, in a way, I think the less obvious the meaning the more people might think and be interested in it. What do you think?

This one obviously means ‘put people over profit’. But what I am not sure about this is that the £ isn’t central and it’s all in one colour. I think I’ll do it on a smaller grid in London to see what it looks like but I’m not sure I’ll do it again and again.

    Sorry for replying on such an old post, but I really like this one! I sometimes bin dive on bold street, but usually between 4 and 6 in the morning because otherwise it’s way too busy. The party’s only just got rolling at 2.

    Ah, I always read this as “money divides people” — but “people over profit” it is, then! (great work, by the way)

      Ooo but your interpretation works too. I like it:) we try and make all of our pieces vague enough and not preachy so that people come up with their own response and interpretation, thanks so much for sharing your interpretation 🙂
