Porno graffiti heats up the Highland: Kenny Be's Sign Language

Pressed into a little electric 2 gets some press.

The porno graffiti pictured above looks like it captures a moment of tenderness. However, "Pressed into a little electric 2" is the lyric from a Pavement song about a guy who wants "to get the fuck out of this town." As seen below, it makes for odd bedfellows...

Odd wall fellows: Pressed into a little electric 2 is over love.

The porno graffiti above is just a snapshot in time. The two stencil art images look like they go together, but they really don't. "Pressed into a little electric 2," is from a song about leaving. A love rose is about sticking it out, as in romance and other thorny concerns.

The image juxtaposition doesn't make much sense of course, unless you're high. Which seems to be a perfect combination for stenciling in northwest Denver.

The stencil art pictured above may be a depiction of Icelandic songstress Björk. The lyric "When will I get my cuddle?" is from her song "I Miss You." Combined with the Pavement porno graffiti on page one, the two song-lyric stencils featured in this blog post tell us that the artists in Highland don't want the love they have, and don't have the love they want.
