New Street Art Friends

How refreshing to see Lisa She-Ra Princess of Power Scaffidi signalling an end to the tedious wall mural craze, casting the deciding vote to leave at least one fucking city wall blank. As Bento notes, “Have we given up trying to make buildings look good in their own right?” Well we never did do that in Perth anyway, but point taken. Let our shitty architectural practice be exposed for what it is – endless unimaginative shite undisguised by a pirate numbat paintjobs. Let this work return to the sides of panelvans where it generally and rightly belongs.

Wall murals are the top knot, bushranger beards, popup shops and sleeve tattoos of yesterday.

When there were no wall murals, (except for the ladder deprived Shime’s) I was all for it. Now, it’s over. It’s played. Perth, go home. A return to a few moronic tags will be, sadly, a relief.

    “I’m inclined to say, hey, a blank wall does it for me.” It’s true love.
