I wonder if graffiti "artists" would like a clutter of spraypaint adorning the walls and doors of their accommodation. I think not.

I'd love for some decent graffitti artists to come and spray my building.

I don't think any sane person would like to live in a house/flat with this shite scrawled over their walls...

I reckon you'd find they suddenly devoloped a pretty conventional "Get that tae f*** off" response if they had to have another artist's material, not of their choice, over their own walls. (Nimby?)

Of course, you could also subject them the cruel and unnatural torture of reverse psychology, and cover their walls with what they would describe as graffiti i.e. plain white walls all around them :twisted:

Edit, sorry, should have been magnolia, not white :oops:

Our definitions of sanity are radically different.

i like it because it's bright and colourful, rather than the drab stone wall that is behind it.

It is black and grey with a tiny little bit of red. Not enough to add colour to the scene, just enough to make it incongruous.

Database for Graffiti Vandals.

Probably not the database the Neds had in mind though.
