Graffiti authorisation

By blindcommissioner - 29 July 2013 6

On Saturday afternoon 27th July, I want for a walk around Yerrabi Pond. I noticed a smell of paint under the via duct on the western Side of the lake.

As I approached a couple of punks who were defacing the concrete wall with their so called “art” I asked what they were doing.

They informed me that they had council permission to paint their “art”.

I asked if they could give me the name of the person who gave them the permission, his name is f**k off *unt.

I have since checked the ACT government website, and not to my surprise council person with that name does not exist.

These future leaders of our country did ask what concern was it of mine to stop their art being sprayed.

I do not like your “art”, and I despise your gutless attitude. The cost on my community as a rate and tax payer to have you deface community property is a cost far too high.

Think about how you can contribute your skills to the community rather than deface, lie and cheat your community.

Graffiti in a viaduct.

Wow, that must be REALLY offensive. I mean, you must have to be visually assaulted -really- badly, when passing the viaduct.

How do you consider this kind of kids activity harmful? If they wanna paint in out of the way places that only they will see, what’s the big deal?

“But it’s graffitti and it should be illegal”

Tell that to the Aboriginal Graffiti artists of 60,000 years ago, who are now so revered, simply because their art is -old-.

Graffitti is temporary, and when it’s out of the way, it offends only those who ACTIVELY seek to be offended.

People like you.

Cry me a ^%$#@ river.

I reckon the real problem is people just tagging and putting up crap pieces. The guvman spends and awful lot of time painting over stuff. I wonder if there was a change in policy and a decision not to paint over anything resembling art, and go hard on silly tags etc whether we’d end up with a more colourful city. The legal spots aren’t covered with tags and nonsense: they’ve generally got some good work. Why not leave the cool stencil art, paste ups, and spray pieces in places like under bridges or on pylons etc? There were some lovely paste ups done under King’s Ave bridge a while back. I think they made it look better and added to the character of our little town.

As opposed to the one that was pointlessly applied to the glass bus shelter around the corner from my place last week (along with a gratuitously enormous circle of paste). I guess that goes to prove your point, really.

f**k off *unt sounds like a very nice fellow and i’d love to meet him and introduce him to LSWCHP!

Had they escaped from the 1980s?

He used to work in parking enforcement.
