i agree with most reasonably minded people that there is a huge differance between tags and pieces and to some extent panels, but i dont think its fair to say that just because you don't like it it's not art. there is such a thing as differant medium's in art and to be honest i think those big stupid steel things that lurk around the city here and there are alot more offensive and people have been paid to do it!
obviously it's not right to deface public property and no-one seems to be able to find anything/anywhere for people to paint thats suits everyone maybe they should just set aside a 6 car set to be painted every few months by who ever submits the best design

also regarding the paint shop, it's not fair to take away someones right to earn a living. havent any of you got more of a problem with say mechanics who modify P platers cars???? they must know full well that an 18 year old kid has little to know experiance driving a powerful car. do you think they ever watch them drive away wondering if there going to kill themselfs or someone else.
just rememeber there is alot bigger problems out there than people painting pictures.......

I agree with the paint shop idea. Just set up a camera somewhere near by and look for people who may be able to help the police with their enquiries.

Sounds like some people here need an English lesson:

    I know that's lots of big scary words, so I underlined the important ones.

    This "tagging vs. art" discussion is a complete nonsense.  You either have permission to apply paint or ink to a public surface, or you do not.  Whether the result is 'art' or not is another question entirely.  An illegal piece of graffiti may be a modern masterpiece, and a publicly sanctioned mural may be a complete eyesore.

    On a related note, I remember many years ago the Melbourne City Council installed 8' by 4' "art boards" in the city square so that spraycan wielding artists could show off their stuff.  These, of course, got vandalised, became a catalyst for violence, and were ultimately removed.

    The issue is not whether it's art but whether it's legal.

    If only it worked like that, cos i'm sure there are some out there with more than one tag.

    I want to see that one that tags along the Malvern-Glenhuntly coridoor to be hanged, i think he goes by the tag 'Rove', there was also a huge tag on the roof of the building on platform 3 at Glenhuntly.

    Yeah, i'm pretty sure it says Rove, cos it's all on building around Caulfield station, you can see it from the train as it goes to Malvern station.

    Talking about which little where asshat spraypainted where only glorifies them and promotes the half-baked concept that it is somehow art.

    I'll offficially back up NinthNotch. Lets not name  the tags and location.

    It has been known for many a such people who do this illegal pursuit to log on here for information, no need to assist them.

    It is a granted that more than 95% of all posters here at Railpage dislike Grafitti. We do not need to go on and on.

    Seen this morning on the back of the building at the down end of Clifton Hill (opposite the signal box) beneath various scriblings in spray paint:

    "why waste paint?"

    It was itself written in spray paint...
      Autopenguin Assistant Commissioner

    Interesting to see a Hitachi expressing out-of-service through platform 6 at South Yarra tonight (around 8.55pm) with the side which I could see completely covered in graffiti murals, windows and all. It looks like the criminals got interrupted before finishing, as the murals on the back cars of the train was incomplete.

    What amused me, by the way, was the destination board settings:

    Front: EAST DONCASTER
    Rear: ST KILDA

    Okay, so 'fess up, who from these forums was driving it then? Smile

    Platform 6 would indicate it was a DOWN train - probably off to Westall for cleaning etc.

    Do we have confirmation on that mate? Dare i say its a bit moronic of connex to park poor harry on an inactive line. Its almost as if they were anticipating/expecting an attack.

    It could park in those other places if there was room, but that ain't necessarily so.

    Besides, I'm told that it was actually parked in the loop line at the Racecourse, not Joe's Loop at the Showgrounds.  Whether it was at the Racecourse end or the Showgrounds end of the loop line I don't know.
