I always thought that the point of paste-ups is that you can spend time and energy making them look good before the dodgy part of putting them up. One of those things could have been scrawled with a marker in a matter of seconds, and would look cooler then 5 of them slapped over the same box, which to be honest is just plain tacky. Quality>quantity. Also, as mr no name said it's pretty simple etiquette not to go over even a tag with stuff like that. Maybe you need to do a bit of research on graffiti etiquette, especially if I'm correct in thinking it was you and your buddies that tagged Leith Bank. Everyone makes mistakes, myself included - just don't push it is what I'm saying. No offense intended, & I hope this criticism is seen as constructive.

HMMM yeah i do understand what your saying. I probaly shouldnt have put more than 1 on the same spot. However as for going over the tag, it has been there for well over a year and has had things constantly being pasted over it(mainly posters for gigs etc). I have tagged stuff down at the leith. But have not/ would not go over other peoples stuff. The reason i photocopy my pastes is because i personally dont see the point of drawing each and every one when i can get them copyd for 5cents a pop. they genrally dont last that long either way. .. But thanks any way for showing your concern. ...

Ok, good to clear that up - I now know who it was that scribbled on the LB pieces, and they'll regret it. I photocopy my paste-ups too - I was pretty much just pointing out that you could've drawn on one of those in less time than it would've taken to paste on 5, and one drawn would be cooler and more permanent.. also a bit miffed at all the messy photocopied paste-ups I've seen lately that are not even cut out, and just slammed haphazardly all over the place.. defeats the purpose of paste-ups.. Just my opinion though I suppose...

so you get ragged on for graffiti etiquette earlier on in the piece and then you rag on the younger(?) guy. Jesus I wish people would stop being so fucking lame. IT'S GRAFFITI. Go over anything you like, paint or paste whatever you will. Graffiti and politics equals shitballs.

I agree with PK, this kid has quantity and no quality. I know it sounds harsh but it does defeat the purpose. Don't you wanna represent yourself well in the streets? The paste up idea IS to spend TIME on it at home and the application is the quick part. Good on you PK for not hidin behind the Anon and speakin yer mind. Then again this IS graffiti and there are no rules so whatever...

"Anonymous": Yea, it's graffiti, and there are no rules in the sense that if someone does something completely vindictive and heartless to someone else, the former person cannot be punished by law. I presume your "Go over anything you like, paint or paste whatever you will, graffiti and politics equals shitballs" statement is only applicable to you because you aren't proud of your work enough to care if someone else went over it.. Now of course graffiti is anti-authority, but what depresses the shit out of me is that a lot of the little 'ftw' writers out there don't have any respect for anyone, anything, not even the dedicated and talented Dunedin artists who inspired them to start writing in the first place! Dunedin is too goddam small to go around making enemies for yourself.. It's not as if this city is short of spots, there's blank spaces everywhere I look, so in my books that means the only reason you'd go over someone else is to make kind of a, big man 'what are you gonna do about it' statement... The day that every spare wall in the city is covered in graffiti (and oh what a glorious day that would be), is the day that going over people would be fine, even encouraged if what you were painting was better that what it was covering. There are just a few brats around at the moment that need their dad's dulux confiscated from them, and a ruddy good spanking...

Ha, repainted a piece in Nth Duds today cuz Weazy had attcked it for the 2nd time with Dulux. All good, fun reason to paint an (if theres a next time) I'll just completely repaint the whole thing.
Keep it fresh and keep evolving...
