Graffiti removal in Canberra, a good or bad thing?

April 18, 2007

Looks like Canberra MP Steve Pratt is in a spot of bother, having painted over an “officially commissioned” artwork that he mistook as graffiti.

OK, so take aside the legalities of it all for a minute, and think about it. Personally I think Pratt did the people of Canberra a public service. OK, so I’m not a qualified art critic, but isn’t it a sure sign of decay in society that we actually pay people to spray graffiti in the name of art? I guess this is a town that hosts Pollacks Blue Poles, so nothing really comes as a surprise 🙂

(and yes, for the record I’ve seen Blue Poles at the National Gallery at least 3 or 4 times over the years, and I still think it’s a piece of sue me 🙂 )

  4. The nike free review has the lightweight and agility that is preferable for speedwork and tempo runs, but also has enough cushioning and support for those 10-15 mile long runs.Nike free was created for those who love the feel of barefoot running.The nike free 3.0 v2 is so light, and super flexible.There is very little heel to toe drop, so it is pretty easy to run on your toes. IF you want to improve your form, and develop stronger feet, these are definitely nike free 7.0 v2 for you.
