GYEAH! HELLO ONCE AGIAN INTERNET, TODAY I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT SOMETHING THAT IS VERY ESSENTIAL TO ART AND THAT THING IS BEAUTY. IS BEAUTY STILL RELEVANT IN OUR FUTURE AGE WHERE INFORMATION IS MAD VALUABLE AND NEOLIBERALISM IS THE NUMBER ONE POP TUNE THAT SEEMS LIKE IT WILL ALWAYS BE PLAYING EVERY TIME YOU TURN ON THE RADIO FOREVER INTO INFINITY? WELL I DON'T GOT ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS, BUT THAT DON'T STOP ME FROM ENWISENING YA'LL TO THIS SHIT! LET'S GO!

GOOD GRAFF/ BAD GRAFF?

The gorgeous Sydney transport system.
Shot by Julie Healy in Aurelio Costarella.

In which situation is this graffiti acceptable? Does fashion render the purposeful and somewhat egocentric tagging of a building or public service OK? There is something to be said about street art;  a creative expression in a anonymous way to enrich our streets and boardwalks, but has tagging gone to far? Are these graffiti 'artists' devaluing what street art is trying to achieve?
