Question: Tell me about “Right to Remain Silent”
“Right to remain silent was my response to continuing zero tolerance anti-graffiti laws within our city of Melbourne.
The councils choose to ignore valid research about tolerance zones and the cultural benefits of street art and continue with a narrow minded viewpoint that all graffiti is vandalism, full stop. As an artist its frustrating to see that this is detrimental to quality street art and graffiti and only contributes to the style of graffiti that is generally considered more offensive and criminal (ie. Tagging). There’s a lot of public support for street art here, its even a tourist attraction, so I find it hypocritical that the local government wont acknowledge this.”
