council_wideweb__470x352%2C0.jpgIt just goes to show, no matter where you go the public just can’t fathom the idea of tagging as an art form—even though it clearly evokes such raw emotions like real art is supposed to do. A local government city council within Sydney, Australia is working on a strategy, similar to what Banksy’s hometown of Bristol did, to save the less offensive street art pieces, while removing the more vandalistic and culture-less “graffiti” style. The report, “Graffiti/Street Art As A Cultural Asset” is urging the council to “recognise the cultural significance of street art activity” and that doesn’t include lowly tags. |SMH|
