05.10.2009 | 街頭涂鴉

幾日前喺報章上見到篇有關街頭涂鴉嘅報導, 內容提到呢啲涂鴉有損市容, 令到市政府大感頭痛.. 其實我又唔係咁認為喎, 我反而好鐘意, 覺得啲人好犀利, 單靠支噴漆就可以作畫喇.. 點講都係人哋成副心機畫出自己一件藝術品吖, 我就覺得好靚, 當係藝術嚟欣賞囉..

以下組圖係我之前喺巴塞隆納求其一條街上見到嘅涂鴉, 為之驚艷即刻用相機影低嘅.. 我好鐘意下邊嗰隻橙色凸眼怪, 得意啊, 哈哈~~

[後記] 當然, 我唔係指廁格牆上畫滿生殖器官, 寫滿電話號碼嗰種涂鴉啦~~ :p
read an article about graffiti on newspaper the other day, that article mentioned that our city council is realising more and more graffiti at public areas in the city, and claimed that those graffiti are kind of vandalism that bring bad image of the city's appearance.. but i totally disagree with that, i like those graffiti and admire how talented those people can be to get things up with just a can of spray paint.. i treat all these as pieces of artwork, and i see them as something beautiful instead..

the collage of pics above are graffiti taken while i was walking down a street in barcelona few months back, i was so impressed with the artwork and quickly took my camera to take snapshots of them.. i especially like that orange eye-popping habitant (or whatever you name it) at the bottom, cute isn't it?? hehe :p

[NOTE] and of course, i am not referring to those reproductive organs and contact numbers all over the toilet walls.. :p

  2. Most of the graffiti are great art work, but I hate vandalism on public areas/walls such as three letter words and some 'who loves who' marks left over by some lovers....

  6. for me, i think the drawing is nice. Better than the government who stick all their poster around for nothing

  7. I think it's all depends on how much does the country appreciates art. Perhaps it's not considered as "art" for our city council?

  8. 涂鸦有时候真得可以说是一种艺术~但是有时候还真得有随便涂字的~哈哈,所以见仁见智~kakaka;)

  9. Actually in KL, those big longkang geh walls, sometimes also got people paint there, they are really good. But what to do? When the gov says it will affect the "image" of Malaysia (like we do have very good one).

    ReplyDelete
  10. They draw it quick, neat and very nice...

    There's one I saw a picture of a Beggar with an empty mangkuk.... Few days later another drawer add on a kid donating money to him...

    Then there's another one with Yasmin Ahmad...

    Very potential to be great artist...

  11. I agree bro. Grafitti are awesome! I mean it is very hard to conjure up this masterpiece. I wanted to try it before! :p

    ReplyDelete
  12. The government should build a big wall for them to go and draw until they're satisfied. It can be a tourist attraction.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I hate the sticking of bills everywhere from light poles to whatever those people get their hands on. The local council should really catch and fine those culprits.

    If happen to be at the Central Market LRT station, look across into the muddy river and along the riverbank (wall), you'll spot some creative graffitti. Not as impressive as the ones seen in other countries but they're quite eye catching. I saw them quite awhile ago. I suppose they must still be there.

  14. Malacca Jonker street got alot I heard...but I never been there. Nice new header you had ;)

  16. 我也覺得這些涂鴉不錯
    不過東一塊西一塊就不漂亮了
    要畫就畫完整副墻壁
    哈哈

  17. 有时睇到呢d街头涂鸦好有创意兼生活化,周不时有意想唔到既神来之笔,但系本地同外国既国情唔同,如果无系适当既地方涂鸦,似乎会影响市容。睇黎有关当局有必要提供适当既场所俾呢班高人发挥发挥!

    我都好钟意你讲既果只橙色突眼怪,好盏鬼!有时画画唔止要讲天份,仲要天马行空,换着系我就肯定无呢个本事咯!嘻嘻!

  18. 我其实都好欣赏架, 好有艺术气息~

  19. I'm sure some of us appreciate some great artworks. But graffiti also includes porn writings and drawings on walls, inside lifts and toilets. So i guess it is upto the intelligence of the authorities to be able to distinguish. Graffiti on buildings, even if great, is illegal too if done without the permission of the building owners.

    Have a wonderful new week ya! ^_^

  20. i don't like them when they're all over the place and doesn't even look nice at all, especially the ones where you can read words like vagina in mandrin, if u get what i mean.

    i think grafitti like those along the walls in the river where you can see from the pasar seni station, whatever that river is, which i think are pretty nice, shud be drawn on a proper wall of a building, and the graffiti shud fill up the entire wall, like that of a mural. with a patch here and there, i don't think it's nice at all.

  21. manglish:
    haha, it really depends on the eyes of the beholder right?? i would say it's something very subjective, either you lurve it or you loath it.. the lines between two extremes are always very fine..

    Grass:
    hahaha, those "who loves who" scribbles are still bearable.. i bet you must have seen those vagina and penis and contact numbers on the toilet walls?? aren't those just disgusting?? hahaha~~

    wenn:
    yeah, i really love their creativity and artwork.. :)

  22. y:
    對啊, 如果你有注意到Pasar Seni河邊那一列的涂鴉, 真的是很好看的.. :)

    Danny:
    yes i agree they are really talented!! what can just scribble what's coming out of their mind.. and i thot you are quite artistic too?? ooopss, hope my new banner didn't give you nightmares.. haha!! :p

    khengsiong:
    係啊, 我係覺得受外國文化影響, 尤其Pasar Seni河邊嗰一帶, 嘩, 簡直係佳作囉..

    ReplyDelete
  23. L²:
    yeah i agree with you.. and i think it's a shame that the city council is trying to erase those artwork.. 影響市容 they claimed.. that is so saddening.. :(

    KY:
    hmmm you are right, maybe 50 years later when others have something else, then our city council will start to accept things that are 50 years back?? so backward thinking, don't you think so?? hehe..

    summer:
    我說的當然是那些美麗又很藝術氣息的啦, 如果你說廁所那些, 我當然是不甘恭維啦, 哈哈!! :D

  24. C'est la vie:
    yeah, if you noticed that stretch of walls by the river across Pasar Seni, you will be able to see all these masterpiece of the grafitti artist.. they are cool man!!

    Jerry:
    yes that is why i really admire how well they can do that.. yes, the Pasar Seni stretch right, that is where i saw Yasmin Ahmad, and the beggar with a kid, is is there too?? let me go and have a look later.. haha :)

    Tekkaus:
    hahaha, of course we are both talking about the same category of graffiti right?? not those toilet scribbles right?? hahaha.. so you tried to do that before?? how was it?? any success?? :p

    ReplyDelete
  25. Legolas:
    actually if not mistaken there was once such event to gather all the graffiti artist to draw they art somewhere, but no idea where already.. anyway, as long as those graffiti not bringing any harmful message, i think it's quite ok..

    Mei Teng:
    haha, you are right, the graffiti are much nicer than those sticky bills.. yeah, Central Market station, that's where the best graffiti artists have laid down their artwork i supposed?? i always enjoy watching them whenever i was there.. they are just cool.. but i remember they were once erased, but now they came back.. kudos!! :)

    uLi.佑莉:
    oh really?? but a bit not matching with the historical looking street yeah?? hahaha.. thanks, hope my new banner didn't give you nightmare.. :p

  26. ~dolly~:
    haiz, those are really what the backward thinking people thiks lor.. to me, i think they look cool and it could well be a nice attraction actually..

    十六夜真人:
    也對啦, 東一塊西一塊的是看不見它們的美, 要一大便牆壁才夠震撼.. Central Market對面有條河, 那邊一大片的, 很好看囉..

    edward:
    首先就要有關當局可以接受涂鴉文化係一種藝術先囉其實.. 之前我記得有個graffiti event架, 不過後來害死冇咩回響啩.. 其實呢啲涂鴉真係睇得到心思架, 唔係隨便亂畫架囉, 我係覺得個畫家有一個訊息要帶出嚟嘅.. 係啊係啊, 個橙色凸眼怪好得意啊何?? 我當時一個人喺街上行, 就係畀佢深深吸引住囉.. :p

  27. Chris:
    吓?? 係咩?? 仲以為細佬你淨係鐘意落club文化添.. :p

    Gratitude:
    hahaha, i must make a disclaimer first.. i'm not referring to those vaginas and penis and contact number scribbled on the toilet walls ok?? hahaha.. you are right, it's still considered some kind of vandalism i supposed, so it really depend on how the authority view the whole thing.. you have a great week ahead too :)

    Medie007:
    haha, of course we are talking about those artistic and those that brings positive messages.. not your vagina and penis scribbles on the toilet walls lah!! yeah, i guess many of us have noticed the stretch of graffiti by the river across pasar seni, they are just very cool to me..

    ReplyDelete
  28. 大佬, 我其实仲更加钟意丧泡文化,哈哈..
    夜夜生歌就最好喇,酒池肉林仲正添.. :p

  29. 街頭涂鴉是一种文化,如果善用,会是一个地方的特色咯。

  30. Bottomline, Malaysian graffiti artists have a long way to go vis-a-vis those of the west. What you've captured are really nice. See what I mean?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I guess there are many types of graffiti. I like the creative and artistic ones.

    Maybe you like Doraemon graffiti. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wow! There's even a graffiti ad for McD! Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hey! I am the top commenter on this blog! Yippee! Got present for me or not? ; )

    ReplyDelete
  34. 你不觉得政府是个艺术白痴吗?

    ReplyDelete
  35. More countries should recgonize this as art. Because afterall it would actually make the dirty walls look good and eventually this graffiti people would do it for free! Well, if they get cocky means they decided to stop spraying the walls haha.

    I once saw a graffiti at the shops near my place, it was an angel... it was really lovely! I thought it was really unique.

  36. Chris:
    細佬, 你小心到時精盡人亡啊, 神仙都打救唔到囉.. 哈哈!!

    Chin Weng 茶先生:
    莫非你說的是一個"涂鴉城"?? 嘩, 這個概念也不錯嘛, 把一個城市弄得很藝術氣息的, 不錯不錯.. :)

    HappySurfer:
    you may be right, but i think what is lack of here is a good platform for them to advance.. just by chance what i've shown here is taken from barcelona, if you have been to the Pasar Seni station, you can actually see some good ones along the stretch by the river bank.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. foongpc:
    of course there are many types, it all depends on what the artist want to present right?? hmmm, so far i've not seen any doraemon around, so disappointing hor?? hehe.. hey, i am also the top commenters in your blog woh, what prize are you gonna give me?? hehe :p

    Wois:
    也不能夠這麼說喇, 各花入各眼嘛, 只能夠說他們的目光還不夠長遠.. :)

    ladyviral:
    well i think these graffiti art has been getting more recognised, instead of seeing them as scribbles and vandalism, they are now more being regarded as artwork, this is something exciting actually.. so you didn't take photo to show us how unique the one you saw near your house?? :p

    ReplyDelete
  38. Btw, SK, I love your new gallery masthead. So cool!

    ReplyDelete
  39. 幾特別啊,好有藝術feel,我buy!

  40. I still remembered when i was visiting Montreal decades ago... I met one graffiti artist whom invited by the city council to draw on the wall @ the Metro link station wall... It was so impress...

    Once our lovely govt has finished all the 1Malaysia related campaign thingy like 1Malaysia Hostel, 1Malaysia blah blah blah... Maybe our graffiti artist will be invited to draw the 1Malaysia graffiti project in some walls downtown KL in the near future... :p

  41. 有些街頭涂鴉很美的,但画在错@地点了。。
    或许政府能指定某些地方让他们呈现藝術天分

  42. HappySurfer:
    haha, thanks for the compliment.. you can go to www.photofunia.com to get yourself one.. :)

    海市蜃樓:
    果然係英雄所見略同喎, 哈哈!! 我哋大家都覺得呢啲graffiti好型呵?? :p

    TZ:
    oh really?? decades ago the canadian already so forward thinking?? hmmmm, it's so long later now and yet our government still cannot totally accept this kind of art.. hmmmm, i remember last year there was a merdeka graffiti event organised by some government body, but have no idea where the thing is now..

    Shell (貝殼):
    你說的也對喇, 就是沒有一個很好的管道來給那些藝術家發揮他們的天份.. 如果有一個特定的地方, 讓他們盡情作畫, 肯定是百花齊放的..

  43. Thank you, SK, for the link. Much appreciated.

  45. hmm heard of Banksy? Graffiti is art or vandalism? pretty subjective but I personally is a fan of Banksy, in fact went all the way to Bristol to see his exhibit but the queue was way to long :(

    ReplyDelete
  46. HappySurfer:
    you are welcome, good things should be shared amongst right?? :p

    KY:
    hahaha!! so another reason for us to come out for a gathering huh?? kekeke :D

    csws:
    hmmm, never heard of Banksy bor.. yeah, it's really something very subjective - it's either you love the artwork or you hate the scribble - there's just only a fine line in between.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. i appreciate the creative graffittis and maybe just give restrictions to those who vandalize with perv stuffs

    ReplyDelete
  48. Google Banksy la, he's now king of graffiti, and his is not scribble, it's stencil graffiti with hidden messages, often very ironic, good stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ayie:
    hmmm, when you talk about vandalism it is just not easy to put a restrictions on right?? just hope they will slowly become artistic graffitis?? :p

    csws:
    of course i know his is not scribble lah, or else you won't fancy his work right?? hmmm, i love those graffiti with hidden message, cool aren't they??

  50. 嘿! 我有看到那篇报道,我觉得他们画得很好. 又不是到处乱来,整体感觉还不错嘛!政府不如把那条河(or 沟渠)清理干净,摆些咖啡档啦, 变成游客区,有些欧陆风那样,一边享受咖啡,一边欣赏艺术。

    呵呵, 你家裡買星洲日報的哩?? 對囉, 我覺得他們畫得很正點, 有沒有栽培你三只小瓜呢?? 你的提議好像很完美, 不過我覺得很難work囉, 恐怕會變成另外一個bintang walk.. 是管理不當和宣傳不足, 還有我們的貪新厭舊..

    LEon:
    yeah, i read that.. and i love that sexy lips on the wall.. hahaha!! :)
