I coincidentally came across some guy’s flickr account documenting his tagging outings in our city. Being an “artistic creature” and risking to sound rather moronic, I find these expressions of public art visually offensive. Graffiti-artists with half a brain don’t repeat the same name, style, etc over and over. This person (or rather group of “artists”) is obviously very un-talented.
Someone before on the RiotACT used a Banksy quote in regards to tagging :
“All artists are willing to suffer for their work. But why are so few prepared to learn to draw?”
I hope this guy get busted and has to clean up all the horrendous crap he pollutes this city with… (or at least gets drawing lessons)
these guys are so cool that they also have a tumblr-blog http://falsiesmob.tumblr.com/

I did, however, find The Angel of Lonsdale Street nearby which I rather liked:
