Popular Summerside graffiti wall dismantled in Canada

Summerside graffiti artists have lost a loved wall where they practice their art.
The Shur-Gain graffiti wall at the former feed store has been taken down because Shur-Gain is re-developing its property.

Brian MacDonald helped get the permission from Shur-Gain to designate the wall, which faced the Trans-Canada Trail, for graffiti artists.

Losing the wall may mean more unwanted graffiti in Summerside, MacDonald said.

"I hate saying it but it may lead to increased tagging in that area," said MacDonald.

The Shur-Gain wall was an area where many established artists would go and according to MacDonald, it had a positive impact on younger artists.

Reunion Day - Rome 2012 (photo & video)

Reunion Day went down last weekend in Rome, Italy. A huge wall at the Rebibbia Station on the end of the famous B-line metro was given by the Rome City Council for Brus and 8 international friends to paint. Roid had to cancel last minute and was replaced with oldschool Hero from Copenhagen

The busy station and bus stop was transferred from a soulless transit area into an inviting space full of urban art over one hot weekend in October. Thanks to Brus and the local organizers and MTN for spraypaint support!

Jail for graffiti vandal who caused £54,000 of damage to trains in Surrey and London

A GRAFFITI vandal who caused more than £54,000 worth of damage to trains has been jailed for 16 months.
A police investigation into Eugene Ironside uncovered dozens of images of graffiti-damaged trains, including one at Caterham station which was damaged in January 2007.

Ironside, 23, had been arrested by police in July last year after the security shutter of a chemist's in Selhurst, near Croydon, had been spray-painted.

He ran off but officers caught him in a nearby park – and found paint on his hands.

Artist Employed by London Olympics Convicted of Graffiti Vandalism

A graffiti artist whose work featured in the opening ceremony of the London Olympics has been jailed for 16 months for causing £32,000 damage to trains in the capital.
Forty-year-old Glynn Judd – known in graffiti circles by his tag Noir – helped decorate the house danced in by Tinie Tempah during the iconic show.
Now he will spend at least eight months behind bars after pleading guilty to 15 counts of graffiti vandalism between 2006 and 2011.

The 40-year-old, who has a young daughter, also pleaded guilty to possessing a can of CS spray, which is prohibited.
Judd’s website claims he had been in discussion with his local authority Hertsmere Borough Council to secure a grant to renovate run-down basketball courts and playgrounds in the area by painting murals.
