In São Paulo, taggers stormed a popular gallery exhibiting streetartists, and tagged the sh*t out of it, spray painting over all of the works and completely defacing the gallery. It's amazing that these kids have shook up the art comminity by reminding us of the rebellion that gave birth to graffiti.

Due to the costs of cleaning up graffiti, Las Vegas are taking more extreme measures to punish artists.
I for one am in favor of this. I do believe that GOOD graffiti art has its place, but gang marking territories, or rebellious 14-year-olds listing the bad words they know have no place anywhere. Plus, Vegas has an image it is probably trying to maintain. Due to the costs of cleaning up graffiti, Las Vegas are taking more extreme measures... more

In 1974 a 33 year old man named George Davis was convicted of robbing the payroll of the London Electricity Board in Ilford. He was nailed on the evidence of cops who were outside the bank at the time of the robbery and was sent to prison for 20 years.
However, his friend Peter Chappell was convinced Davis was innocent and inspired by discrepancies in the police statements and the fact that none of the bloodstains at the scene matched with the defendant, started calling for Davis' release. Chappall enrolled some friends and embarked on one of the largest sustained grafitti campaigns Britain has ever seen. Over the following months 'G DAVIS IS INNOCENT' appeared on walls, bridges and tunnels from one side of London to the other, some of which are still visible today.
The vandalism culminated in Chappell and four others breaking into Headingley cricket ground in August 1975 the night before a test match between England and Australia. Using plastic cutlery from a service station they dug holes in the pitch, filled them with oil and painted 'Sorry it had to be done, but George Davis is innocent' in large white letters on the wall as they left. The match was postponed and Chappell got 18 months for criminal damage.
The campaign brought the case to the attention of the Home Secretary who after a police inquiry released Davis two years into his sentence using the highly exceptional and controversial Royal Prerogative of Mercy.
The fight to free George Davis was one of the most spetacular campaigns ever fought against injustice, an achievement only slightly marred when a year after his release Davis was found guilty of robbing the Bank of Cyprus for which he served six years, and three years after which he was caught red-handed robbing a mail train.
George Davis is now a free man and happily married to the daughter of a North London Chief Inspector of Police.In 1974 a 33 year old man named George Davis was convicted of robbing the payroll of... more

More and more promoters of protest and artistic graffiti appear in different Belarusian towns, leaving their traces all over the country. Even though life expectancy of stencil pictures might be very short, they definitely are noticed by many people."BANKSY SUCKS" Despite all the attempts of our authorities to stop the... more
Taggers come from every race and socio-economic background. Although most taggers are males there are female taggers. Some indicators that your child may be a tagger are:
* Your child frequently wears baggy pants or carries a large backpack. These are used to carry cans of spray-paint, various colors and types of magic markers, etching tools, slap tags and cameras to take photos of their taggings. The clothes and backpack may be paint stained.
* Your child has or carries tools used for etching glass or mirror surfaces such as spark plug porcelain, drill bits, screwdrivers with a sharpened tip, small rocks, or any other type of sharp instrument.
* Your child is frequently deceitful about their activities and cannot adequately explain why they possess the above described items.
