A Ghostpatrol pasteup on Gertrude St that I photographed two months ago has suffered an undignified fate. The Curve fashion shop has painted over their half of the work. A property owner of course has the right to do what they want with their property, but does this improve the look of their shop or not? I say not. The work of a well known artist, who the customers probably like, is better than blank walls and messy graffiti.
It’s a short-sighted and narrow-minded response that reflects poorly on the business. At least they should have consulted and worked with their neighbour to repaint their wall completely.
