September 2017 Day 7

Did you ever participate in creating graffiti or any type of artwork that would have been confrontational?

My answer – No!

Street Art and Graffiti is not encourage in Taranaki, all though there are some works around this area.

What is the difference between Street Art and Graffiti? The only way I can explain it is Graffiti is “BAD”, and it’s not welcomed anywhere.

Street Act is beautiful if done by experts.

Graffiti is writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched or painted illicitly on a wall or other surface.

One thought on “Mcclendonvilla September 2017 Challenge – Day 7

  1. There are folks in this country that make a habit of painting on train cars. Some of the paintings are very pretty, but they aren’t in an acceptable place. I think some of these folks would make a very good living from their art were they putting it in an acceptable place and not vandalizing someone else’s property.

    I am glad that your area discourages it. Have a blessed weekend. 🙂
