Middle class graffiti sweeping Bristol

Middle class graffiti is popping up in Bristol, with the words "quinoa", '"pesto" and "rioja" all being spray-painted on walls around the English city.


Middle class graffiti is popping up in Bristol.

The city in the West of England is being over-run with street art featuring food-stuffs such as quinoa, pesto and rioja, in a change from typical graffiti such as gang tags and rude images.

One local, Joe Sims, told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It is perfectly Bristolian and in keeping with the urban gentrification of the area ... Maybe it will take over postcode rivalry."

The strange "grafoodie" trend has even led to the hashtag #middleclassgraffiti trending on Twitter.
