The Twiddle

Another work of art on a wall, seen in a back lane. This is a normal colour shot subject to some experimentation on PhotoShop. 

 

The Vandalism Act of Singapore criminalizes a number of different forms of writing, drawing, painting, marking or inscribing property. A fine and/or jail terms are likely. The High Court may impose a caning penalty and although vandalism is not a huge problem, offenders in the recent past have been penalized.

Works well as a plate from a comic, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Exactly! And I envy graphic artists who work free hand and create such work (whether it is on paper or on a wall), Ray
It's pretty good,Ayush, the way to get round it is to give artists spaces to paint...Where I live in England they have done that, and its improved some places greatly, they even have a festival of it each year, there is lots of street art here in Flagstaff too, that looks great...smile
Ayush Basu: Agree with you on all points, Frank. And I think the realization here in Singapore is the same. Do this on pre-agreed areas and you will be rewarded. Break into a train depot and spray paint on a train, you'll find a lot of heat on you wink

kinda creep, especially the illuminati skull and cross bones lol
Ayush Basu: I see what you mean Elaine, I wonder if the artists were inspired by anime and manga related stuff tongue
I like your Twiddle - some street art is just that... art. Not like tagging - that's just graffiti! (in my opinion!)
Ayush Basu: Thank you. I'm pleased you like it, Elizabeth.
I totally agree with Frank...give them places to vent off their steam...and art. WE NEED GRAFFITI ARTISTS!
Ayush Basu: Well put, Ginnie. There should be some outlet provided to them and the artists need to exercise some judgement. Do this on pre-agreed areas and you will be rewarded. Break into a train depot and spray paint on a train, you'll find a lot of heat on you.

Yes - they are strict about this sort of street pollution
Ayush Basu: Yes, they have are not amused one bit if graffiti artists break into a train depot and spray paint on a train!
I agree with those who are in favour of street art. In the right place it improves the environment
Ayush Basu: Quite right, Bill. There should be some outlet provided to them and the artists need to exercise some judgement. Do this on pre-agreed areas and you will be rewarded. Break into a train depot and spray paint on a train, you'll find a lot of heat on you.

The subject of graffiti intrigues me. I am always impressed by how well these people do their 'art'. And some of the artists are really artists. The spend a lot of time and paint to exhibit their art. I believe there should be some kind of solution that will make everyone happy - e.g. let them decorate the walls in a children's playground. Or paint old unsightly buildings, like unused warehouses.

Creepy eyes and teeth... good experiment with the green though.
Ayush Basu: Normally I do not play around but once I started with this one, there was no stopping tongue
I like it, regardless of what the law says...
Ayush Basu: Thank you. I'm pleased you like it, Larry
Neon is suitably creepy.
Ayush Basu: Yeah I went too far, didnt I grin

In Ghent there is a special street where graffiti are allowed - I'm not in favour of street art if it spoils historical buildings. I agree with Louis. I don't like tagging.
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, of course. Graffiti is fine if tastefully done and there's definitely an appropriate place to do it.
A good way to vent your artistic energy but in the right place so as not to offend. Nice shot of this detail Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you. I'm pleased you like it, Janet. I agree about it not being offensive
Good stuff - it suggests what the artist thinks of authority!
Ayush Basu: Thank you. I'm pleased you like it, Tom. I think on both sides there is a thin level of tolerance wink
I agree with all the others......give the artists a space to do their work. It brightens up a neighbourhood.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Pauline, I think we all agree on that.
It's all too green.
Ayush Basu: Yeah, I went overboard with the twiddling grin
