Damaged B&W Mural

The mural which I showed you last Monday has been hit by taggers after only being finished for about 2 weeks. I asked the owner of the store about it and apparently it was hit in mid-afternoon and she is frustrated and ready to give up. I hope she may re-consider and will have the artist return. The only way to stop taggers is to remove their damage immediately as she has by painting over with black for the time being.

Very frustrating indeed. I can't imagine someone doing that to such a beautiful piece.

Bloody little idiots.

Shall we dispatch Fluffy, Destroyer of Worlds after them?

I really can't stand the disrespect that taggers have for other people's property (the owner) and other people's artwork (the artist who created it). My comment last Monday was something like How long do you think it will be before the taggers deface it? I regret having foreseen the result, but it seems that Toronto's taggers are running wild.

Some people just have no respect. Plain petty and destructive.

A kiss.

Shame it's damaged, it's so cool and clever.

Imagine how the artist feels after all his hard work. I talked to a street artist recently who confirmed the street code that one does not tag street art. But he also acknowledged there are ignorant kids (in my experience mostly middle school age) who do not observe the code. Hope the wall's owner will fight the tagging. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Daen! Sad to say e have taggers at work here in East Gwillimbury too. Somebody needs to give these kids something meaningful to do with their time.

Graffiti is probably the most common, but also the worse kind of malicious property destruction.
