Many people have seen the latest graffiti painting at the back of the house opposite the opposite the Tropicana takeaway place on Back Street (Ah-Can's).
These are some of the same off-Lamma guys who painted the Fountainhead Bar several times, not the guy behind almost all the other graffitis along the harbourfront.

Any opinions about this painting?
Do we want to see more like this on Lamma?
Anybody's got a big wall that they'd like painted like this? They need permission before they'll paint and would appreciate at least the cost of the (German-made) spray cans and quite a few beers (Heineken) to inspire them while painting:

Does this tagger do this at night? How can you not spot a kid with a spray can, in broad day light. It's hard to imagine someone doing this late at night on Lamma when all the freaky bugs come out, and the last ferry at 12.

Still very nice graffitti, he or she has some talent.

They've just renewed this specific graffiti again, replacing just the WILD with an even fancier lettering. It's a group of experienced adult artists who are doing this, with permission in broad daylight, with quite a few spectators and fans watching. They just painted another private home as a favour, paid only in beers.

This is very different from all the illegal and usually very ugly tags you see in other places more and more on Lamma, just black signatures and stick figures, or all the amateurish, cliché hippie-ish stuff on the seawalls and on the way to the ferry pier we could well do without.

The Chin. Jing Jing Bar has also just reopened and has two long walls with colourful graffiti paintings inside.

looks nice, we should see mmore of this on lamma. Maybe painting the facedes of boring houses would be a good idea. (not in graffiti style but a bit more crazy than just white boring paint)

Called Lammagrafitti, I assume that "Democracy/Crezy" wall is going to attract more artists, to keep on posting stuff up.
