Train journeys will be a bit duller from now?

From an artistic pov, some street art is a joy to see. And I have seen some absolute quality pieces.
There is an Hairdressers on Norwood Road, in Herne Hill (about a mile from Loughborough Junction Rail Station), which has a spray painted picture of a woman's face on the roller shutter. I believe that the owner paid the artist a couple of grand for the work. And it genuinely is a beautiful piece.
However, I have nothing but contempt for these little sh1ts whom criminally deface trains and other private property.
 
Its nothing to do with the "class" of these feckless individuals; the entire main stream media, press and public sector are lauding them and their ilk as talented artists, part of "street art culture" - I don't think I've seen "vandal" or "criminal damage" mentioned anywhere in the press (apart from the readers' comments, of course).

We live in a society driven by an agenda to regard everyone as blame-free (unless its an individual from a despised class, such as middle-aged white males...). Thats why we have whole sections of illegal behaviour now abandoned from policing because the perpetrators are deemed to be victims of some sort of oppression or disadvantage.
The larger public attitude seems to have adopted that practice of lionising criminals and losers as somehow those who are rebelling against the machine, plus those that get 15 minutes (sometimes longer) of vacuous fame or longer term based on no discernable talent or achievement.

Here is such a waster.

Have you seen the carrier fisher image in Peckham done in a similar way? There are some very talented artists out there.

No. I haven't. I have stated that I have seen some lovely works of art. The talent of some of these people is undeniable. My youngest daughter has a 4ft x 2ft spray painted canvass picture of a night time London skyline hanging above her bed, which her mum bought for her from the Lambeth Country Show a couple of years ago.

The key difference, of course, is that someone actually asked for those. So no trespass, no vandalism, and lest we forget, no standing in front of an effing train to do it...

On an unrelated note, good to see that the ad server has a sense of humour

A few years back, a couple of 'artists' were caught in the act in my hood (I'm down with the language) at 0-darkH00, thrown in the back of a van, and had their paint cans emptied all over them, including hair, clothing, shoes, ears etc, and transported 10kms out of town.
And dumped.
