Last week on Campbell live there was an item about a pharmacist in Mt Manganui that had put up an amusing sign on her shop after it was tagged right across the front. The sign was quite funny (News item here) but they interviewed a guy (a customer?) who complained about unsightly tagging on the backs of industrial buildings. He DID say that there was some legitimate street art and talented artists out there but really what is the problem with covering grey walls? Ok vandalism in breaking windows and stuff yeah a problem, but writing on the backs of factories? I am obviously missing something.
and yeah I am starting to see a pattern here about my newly emerging art passions…
