^^Ohhhh, now I get it. it's just a tag that's been pixelated. I thought it looked pretty good and was wondering how it was possible to paint those intricate patterns!

You think that's something, there's a series of works behind the Wholesale Club that's intricately 3D - mind blowing stuff with a few cans of paint.

^Yeah, but those guys are standing on solid ground--I mistakenly thought the guy above painted that complex design while hanging off a drain pipe four storeys up!

I like to picture an Adam West-era "Batman and Robin climbing the wall" set-up :D

Below are pictures from a local heritage building that was damaged by a criminal.

 

That pic certainly says a lot re: the pride Victorians take in their heritage buildings.

As per the formula, there's a pretty impressive ground floor hiding under there.

Meanwhile, the CoV probably has the graffiti "artist" on a shortlist for affordable housing.

Police located two young people at the scene. Parents were called and attended. Alternative measures were taken, and youths were not charged. The graffiti was cleaned up. 2020-1963” http://oakbaypolice....1-june-28-2020/

I believe a plaque was taken down (as in hacked down) along the galloping goose at the exit to Glow. I can’t remember what it was for but the hacked out remnants are there. Funny that no one cares that it’s gone. Must take the fun out of it.

I bet there would be a pretty intense police hunt if somebody knocked over a totem pole.

People, please don't fall for this stuff. If you don't like the disunity game then just refuse to play it.

Hows that low brow? Hes commented on hypocrisy and a two tier law enforcement we seem to have in this city. And he's right

Right about what? Something that we don't have any information on whatsoever?
