Save Our Blank Walls

Perth wall muzak has reached such a low point that it now has a system default font and clip art. Plonked – apparently without irony, next to what I think is the city’s only piece of political graff. I hope Chilly’s was offering more than free Gazas. Very jaunty fonts on the Free Gaza and the Kwik Skips. Certainly both a cut above the unfortunate unblanked wall. Is that arial on the Chilly’s?

The resulting festival of mediocrity resulted in another couple of tame pieces of visual pollution in Mt Lawley assumedly from the same stable of tame exterior decorators (artists would be a stretch), that still infest the rest of the city. No more blank walls. Jeezus. Manages to be threatening, and boring at the same time. Fuck them. Only thing that relieves the tedium of this is the parking sign taped to it.

    I feel sad for these (Kmart-level) artists.

    They will never be in the OG Perth Graf Bible, High 5’s ‘The Book of Rules’ – but I am.

    So sad, “no one left behind” has morphed into “no render shall be left uncoloured”
