Steve Pratt destroys artwork, thinking it graffiti
Apr 19th, 2007 at 9:34am
 
http://www.smh.com.au/news/breaking-news/act-graffiti-row-headed-for-the-courts/2007/04/18/1176696901401.html

ACT opposition politician Steve Pratt has told staff in a government department to "get their stat decs ready" in a row over Mr Pratt scrubbing off a commissioned mural in his war on graffiti.

On Saturday Mr Pratt scrubbed off the mural near a cemetery in the southern suburb of Woden, thinking it was graffiti.

Worsening the problem for Mr Pratt, a community arts spokesman said on Wednesday Mr Pratt had been warned the mural was not to be removed.

But Mr Pratt denied ever speaking to anyone from the ACT Community Art program.

"It's absolute bullshit, you can quote me on that."

You've beaten people up for painting murals?

They were actually 17 and 18 year olds. little wiggers.
They kept spraying my back fence, i kept cleaning it, they kept doing it so i got sick of it and ambushed them one night.

Well, give us all the details. You should report them also. Graffiti costs the public a fortune, as you probably know by now.

Nice.  Smiley


Believe it or not... Freediver... it's quite difficult bashing up a group of 10 13-year olds. Like a spider trying to take on an army of ants.

I DID! not just me but all my neighbours copped the vandalism. we all made reports, REPEATEDLY.
Bloody cops did nothing.  So for a whole week i hid in my neighbours bushes (with permission) and waited for them to do it again. surely, they eventually did. So i charged out of the bushes, decked the bigger one in the face- knocking him out and tackled the smaller one. I acted in an insane manner to scare them and it worked... the younger one pissed himself! Grin
They've never returned.

Thats funny freediver..

Anyway if graffitti is  a problem in any area..it is usaully because the youth of that area are not taken are not kept otherwise occupied. As for 'beating' them up..well lets say..its  a waste of time..Im sure Ausnat made sure they were all over the age of 18.

We have much bigger problems in our world to worry about than grafitti.

Soem graffitti is amazingly beautiful and considered valueable works of art in some countries. Lets veiw it as a plus.



A lot of talent in our community. They just want pple to see what they can do.

well.

Ausnat ..art encompasses many different forms and stlyles. old and new. Graffitti done as an artform is one of the newer styles.

Indigenous art is beautiful..Picasso..Davinci etc..Rembrandt Van Gogh etc.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I never said above was beautiful was merely an example of constructrive graffitti that some pple do find beauitiful.

the text from above post was missing past time I looked..mine, I mean.

Well, when it comes to art im very fussy. i dont care for ''graffitti''- how can it be genuine art? ive never seen it in art museums and, ive never seen a rembrandt on a colourbond fence.
I dont care for abstract either.
I like classical art.
Its just my opinion- graffitti is vandalism.

No. I will just point out that according to what you posted above, it depends on the 'taste' of the viewer.

I would agree with that..some pretty unorthodox stuff passes as art..some hate it ..some love it..eye of the beholder.
