The Age~want to play tag?
The Age, Melbourne Newspaper has produced an interesting article on graffiti, focusing on the tagging element of the "illegal culture." It's one of the few non-biased graffiti articles getting around in the mainstream news. Rather than picking a side and most often it is Public Transport Victoria having a whinge about graffiti and how every train should be sparkling clean. And these artists are menace to our Utopian blank wall society. This article follows the writer and tries to explain the culture and make it easier to relate to and better understood. Graffiti often doesn't rate in the news. This is a reasonable attempt by the author to provide an insight into the elusive culture. http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/decrypting-the-mindless-scribble-of-melbournes-illegal-graffiti-20151127-gl9mkb.html
