Apologies for the lack of pics. Some months ago, I noticed the fences facing Sulwood Drive along the bottom of Mount Taylor in Kambah looked different – someone had spraypainted palms and trees on the mostly colorbond fences.
Since then its spread to Lyons and Mawson areas as well. At first I thought this was an urban terrorist of some kind, making graffiti nice and all that, but I’ve begun to wonder:
- The cost of paint would be adding up.
- If working under the cover of darkness, it would be hard to maintain such consistent patterns without a stencil.
- Any stencil used would be cumbersome and awkward for any sneaky arts kid.
- Every now and then it skips a fence, perhaps suggesting an ‘opt-in’ by the owners.
With all this, it occured to me that maybe its a government thing. It looks great either way, but keen to find out more…
