What we need...



... is more of the above and less of the below! My interpretation of the stencil art found here in the inner city suburb of Leederville is all about offering care and friendship and I'm pretty sure that isn't the artist's signature below. There is too much tagging going on around Perth, where's the respect! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  4. A simple image but loaded with much sentiment.

  5. People have to write over all things and spoil them for other people. All the bushman paintings and Indian art are totally spoilt by idiots who want to try and draw by them and sign names. Sad history has to be spoilt!!! Have a good Tuesday Diane

  8. I thought the problem was only in cities in the USA. Maybe a bunch of yanks moved to Perth.

  9. More art, more caring, less tagging. Is that too much to ask?

  11. In my local artist supply shop the spray cans of paint are kept in locked cabinets..... good thing too. But the tagging goes on.

  13. It´s sad, Grace, those dumb grafitti-sprayers have arrived in Perth, too.
    What is it, jealousy cause they cannot create artful, meaningful things?
    At least there is (still) so much respect to not destroy the mural itself...

  15. I hear you and totally agree! We need peace across the world, and it's up to each of us I guess. Small steps, we can do it!

  16. It's amazing how much emotion can be conveyed with just a few lines. Well spotted. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  17. I like the stenciled image, but not the tagging. Nothing wrong with tenderness, but the other just defaces public space.
