I WATCHED with interest “Edisi Siasat Mandarin” on ntv7 regarding the plight of our “graffitti warriors”.
In other developed countries, grafitti artists are allowed the freedom of expressing their fine art.
In fact, graffiti does contribute to the beautification process, as these artists merely paint the walls, which otherwise would be in plain boring colours and they do it for free.
DBKL re-painted the walls, destroying the work of the artists. In fact, much of their art work centred on portraits of past leaders and the iconic KL Tower.
I believe there should be a place designated for them.
This could be a tourism attraction for tourists to see the creative side of Malaysians.
Let’s not brand them in a negative manner but recognise their “indirect contribution” towards tourism and the beautification of KL public walls.
