I turned up at the Russian Church in Narrabundah two weeks ago and a large graffiti tag had appeared on the front entrance.
Clearly this artist was looking for somewhere to express him/herself, but it would’ve been nice if he/she had’ve found somewhere else.
I must admit I’m a fan of calligraphic art, but not when it disrespects something else that is also an artistic expression (such as an architectural piece of cultural or spiritual significance).
It’s a real pain to have to remove this stuff and to be honest, reporting it to the police is tiresome and likely to get someone in trouble that they don’t want or need.
A bit more cultural sensitivity by the street artists out there would be wonderful.
