I agree, these ‘people’ need to find something more productive to do with their time. However, maybe we shouldn’t be continuing to give them this media publicity for their ‘work’?

Hey guys, while I appreciate that giving it further attention only propagates this cr@p, I’m basically interested in seeing whether others agreed with my view of it in the efforts to show opposition to this behaviour.
My issue is that it looks like shite, it’s talentless and destructive, and contributes nothing.
Why are these people running around at night with spray cans? I bet they’re not employed. They certainly appreciate that it is illegal, otherwise they’d do it in the daylight hours.
I’d be happy to see a creative mural or something thoughtful but all this represents is selfish vandalism.

Yeah, that. I don’t care how witty or intelligent it is, it’s messy and it’s not your f$&@ing wall. There’s a place for nonsensical rambling. It’s called the Internet.

I don’t think Banksy’s got much to be jealous of.

Dimwitted talentless arsehats whose highest artistic achievement is spray painting crap on the walls of public toilets and other people’s property.

It makes things ugly. I have no respect for them. I wish they would stop.

It is the basic lack of respect for other people’s property that shits me. If they have so much time on their hands and are so rich that they don’t need to get a job… let them buy their own building, deface it in their own manner, devalue the building and throw their own money away.
It is not just children in the dark… recently in broad daylight, someone who was old enough to have a job, pulled out a couple of sharpies and started defacing a freshly painted building whilst there were people standing around talking. I relieved him of the sharpies and encouraged him to be on his way. He crossed the road, pulled out a third sharpie and started defacing another building, so I had to give him further encouragement to be on his way. And yes, the scribble was the most talentless crap I’ve seen. What is it that makes them think they are artists and what makes them think they have the right to mess with the property of others?

I have to disagree.

what’s a ‘falsies mob’ anyway? rabid kangaroos, mebbe? and how, from simply vandalising ‘muriel’ on walls does anyone know they (and how do we know it is ‘they’?) have this name?

‘They’ were probably trying to a do a mural, set a low standard but failed to achieve it.

If you follow the link in the article it goes to falsiesmob.tumblr.com which seems to be their image blog.

Using my astounding powers of deduction, I would suggest that this stands for False Idols which you can see labelled next to many of their pieces.

If they are so good then why are they doing tags? If you are a tagger, you are litterally the most creatively bankrupt and talentless pos.

i, too, possess deductive powers, dante – but ‘falsies mob’ is different from ‘false idols’ (in case you hadn’t realised). the tumblr page doesn’t shed much light on the details of the perpetrators, certainly not to the extent of the op. i think i’ll await an more reasoned answer, but thanks for the consideration.
