this guy has got some good skillz and his work echoes with some of the features running through meggs work also.
Its hard to appreciate it in this particular place behind vege bar however, this wall had long been a running board for visiting and local writers and now it gets iron shielded with all round infra red cctv and a respectable artist with whom capping will bring villification from the established scene.
Where do we say no more ?
When there is no longer any walls for fledglings and toys ?
These large scale murals are great and I respect that these writers and artists have done the yards to get them but does that mean that everyone else misses out and the local scene diminishes because of this. Does this not serve to further drive a wedge between “tagging, throwies,” and the desired and now trendy “street art”
It is also a part of the established artists responsibility to use their power to provide opportunity for young writers and artists to push through and develop as new additions to the scene without being marginalized or streamlined through the “what is ok” and “you are just a vandal”
With increasing development of apartments in this former melting pot of the culture the majority of slightly off road areas is rapidly diminishing so it is necessary to attempt and at least recognise that it is important to make an effort to provide tolerance so that our streets may be replenished by the upcoming generations, and in their own way.
Alientation by ignorance of or apathy will as ever only serve to create voids and social problems. Better to be painting a wall than stabbing someone or shooting up.
