Now this tag is unmin. But when I was just a little boy you came across him in every pool changing room. The cheerful graffiti with ‘Kilroy was here’. A man with a thick cock-nose who looks curious about a fence. Sometimes with three hairs and sometimes not. An effective icon to be copied by everyone. Later I heard that this graffiti originated in the Second World War as a clandestine quality mark for allied army material. What attracts me is that this logo has started to lead its own life and, depending on the sender, has its own signature (and even meaning).
