Question: do you think it would be a good idea to have places were people could do graffiti or even show it of?

    Hi cheesingtononrex

    I do, yes. It is a good idea for people to express themselves, it is art in itself. We are having a graffitti wall built in our local park. We are hoping that the kids will like it and they will own it as their own. We would get it painted out every couple of weeks so they can refresh it as they please.

    Thanks. Gary.

    Yes graffiti can be a nice thing to see however most people do it in public places.

    Hi molliepop … yes, but, if it is acceptable this shouldnt be a problem it’s the offensive stuff that upsets people and, I suppose, where the artist has left their mark.

    I have commented on this elsewhere but, have you heard of Banksy? he is a well known gaffitti artist … look up on this link for more info

    Thanks. Gary.
