Whats the point 2 by pete-aeiko Whats the point 2 by pete-aeiko
Updated the original, made it more atmospheric and edited a bit..wanted a new print.

To cut a long story short, this piece cost me 60 hours community service, and a £600 / $1200 fine!

The original Video of the project - including public footage from monday!

On the westcountry news

My photo on front page of the paper

Another shot of paper

Ive been looking for this picture again. Ever since I originally saw it, I was inspired to break the law in the name of art lol.

Love it! Great job.

I would love for you to come make some conceptual art in every tunnel in my city. How come others don't perceive it as inspiring and joyful when artists like yourself create something creative like this? Besides our fellow DeviantArtists of course...

I had a lot to say about this...but thinking it over, it sounds redundant...
..I really like the concept rather than the photograph, though..

It kinda sends the message that no matter where you run, whatever you did will find you.

In a way you could say did them a favor. I'm sure they would much rather have simple arrows than something rude. And I wouldn't classify this entirely under vandalism. It certainly wasn't legal, but you didn't do it for any other reasons than to make a positive statement. It also seems odd to show something like this along with more obviously vandolous acts. I was surprised they didn't recognized the fact that this doesn't fit under the other categories the other acts were used for. The other acts were obviously to only gain attention where your's was a peaceful way of making a point.

well, theres my two cents. It's a lovely photo. :meow:

They should be punishing the people that put the crap that was up there before you painted it .-.
At least it looks ten times better.

For art or not, we know what we are getting into when we do what we do, no point in trying to justify it as art or not. Kudos on an awesome piece, sorry you got caught and branded with the same label as the other idiots, it's still vandalism but at least yours has an actual concept and idea behind it.

This is absolutely beautiful, I remember watching the vid when you first posted it. How criminal (and yet typical) of the news and Police to view it as vandalism!
