Legal Graffiti Writer Arrested In London

July 28, 2012

The whole Olympics crackdown on street art is getting out of control. Darren Cullen is a legal graffiti artist, part of Graffiti Kings, a company commissioned by Team GB to create some enticing street art for the event.

illegal arrests, missile launchers mounted on apartment blocks without even asking the permission of the people who live there, suppression of  news, removal of anything or anyone, that the unelected powers that be, decide on a whim. All this for a bit of running and jumping. Is it really worth it?

If it’s a trade off between The Olympics and human rights, I’ll take the latter thanks.
