Security guards, security cameras.. all for naught.
Improvement. Seriously, it would be depressing if someone could put up a building size art work in public space in this neighborhood ("edgy" circa 1979) and not have it get messed up. Does anyone really expect this not to occur? And why would that be a good thing?
I will break down and weep tears of joy the day that hating/haters/"haters gonna hate" finally disappears from the popular lexicon.
Stop hating! That's so precious. Thanks for letting us know what a needy, whiny little bitch you are. Fucking taggers-- oh how I wish your mom's and dad's had done a better job raising you. Probably even more useless than taggers are the yuppie douchebags who defend and even celebrate this behavior. "Hey look at me, I am so edgy and downtown, and I am DOWN with graffitti."
I like evolution of art as much of the next guy, but taggers are some lazy uncreative sorts these days. That's just ugly. Use a color. Draw a picture. Have an idea that isn't the bubbleletter tag that's been done thirteen thousand times a second since 1979.
Grieve, you're usually so on top of what's happening in graffiti, this is a couple days old. I'm surprised Bobby Williams hasn't sent in a couple of pics of Joe Strummer's green lapels (since Monday) courtesy of "laroc" or the new (post-xmas) mural on the 2nd & A Chase bank. I happened to see "laroc" in action as I was walking by, a 5ft-6in stocky guy in a bulky beige coat who's suddenly leaving his mark all over these days. Personally, I'm pissed, cuz the E-ville is NOT his, no matter how many places he leaves his name.
why not put up cameras to record these vandals?and .....no one witnesses this crime and/or says anything?Get it together East Vill
Kenny Scharf was a graffiti artist back in the day--yup--he would paint and tag--so now that he has recognition-he opposes those who are following in his footsteps. Maybe the bombers should ask him first..but that is how he started out.
@ 4:55 PMWay to show your ignorance.Kenny never defaced other writers work. Writers / artists banded together and supported one another back then.You obviously weren't around; read a fuckin' book.
kenny scharf can go suck himself. it's time for a new mural in my opinion. keep up the good work graffititizers.
