Graphitti

I noticed quite a bit of graphitti art in Brussels; on buildings, on walls, on train cars, sometimes even on phone junction boxes. This one was seen near the Jardin du Mont des Arts, near the stairs leading from the garden up to the Museumstraat. Normally I appreciate graphitti if it has a meaning or some witty story to tell and is done well. But I fail to see anything worth admiring in this one, imposed on the other poorly maintained sculptures

You are right about that!

You don't turn into a deeply thinking revolutionary by just spraying an A on a wall...
Ayush Basu: I agree

Ayush Basu: Thanks for sharing your view
I just can't stand seeing graffiti at all Ayush.

This is a fine sculpture but the graffiti is simply banal
It spoils it all Ayash.
Ha ha... It's "Freedom of Speech".
They're too suppressed that they don't dare to deface their own front doors to express their thoughts.
Nice shot that says a lot about urban society.
You have to ask yourself what drives a person to want to put their mark on things that do not belong to them. Defacing public property is despicable. I wonder how many of these 'artists' are caught in the act and if they are forced to clean it up themselves or is it the taxpayer who absorbs the cost.
