Great BennyV 2018-12-10 2:04

Hi Mark

Great street art, well shot. I just read in our local newspaper this morning that one of the districts of the city where I live (Antwerp) will have a department of street art, with an elected politician in charge. I wonder what that'll do to our street art scene...it seems strange...

Default To BennyV: Me taking you taking me

Hello Benny,

You're right. The idea of a government official, particularly an elected one, in charge of the street art seems farcical. What policy will they run on? More expressionism or realism? Perhaps that the "tagging" must be legible?

On the other hand, if it means that they will be commissioning artists to do the work, it may result in larger projects and less vandalism of them. In Phoenix there is very little vandalism of these large murals and the artists creating them are paid for their talents and work.

Warm regards,
Mark
