    Chris,
    I’m sorry for what happened to your builing. With a property that old, its hard to tell that its undergoing any kind of restoration, especially since its had graffiti on it for going on 20 years now. I know you’re probably gonna laugh at this, but since you own such a large area of wallspace, perhaps making a portion of it available to paint for the “good” graffiti artists would cut down on activity in your area from the “bad” ones? Just a suggestion..

    thats not a bad idea, i have many friends in town that do scrawl or graffiti inspired work. some have expressed interest in doing some murals on the building in the spring and summer. we are having urban scrawl 5 at the building in august. one idea was to have a group throw down a permanent mural on the building. as far as wall for people to randomly tag i think that could be problematic. i would hate to create an entrapment type situation too.

    I don’t think it would be entrapment if the bad taggers could do it there freely. Provide a dedicated sspace, proper trash receptacle and hidden surveillance…I would love to find out who shows. Footage would be handy for catching them in the act there and making convictions elsewhere.

    I appreciate your open-mindedness. An entrapment scenario would not be created since a vandal has to be caught in the act of VANDALISM for the authorities to assign a specific tag to that person. If you created a legal setting on your own property, depending on wehther or not its visable from the street, people could paint there without fear of legal reprecussion. The gentleman whom you are reffering to as “write” is a personal friend of mine, and has stated to me that all of his tags done on the EXTERIOR of your property were done in late 2008, except the one on the corner by the mural. He has expressed remorse for what he did on the inside of your building, and is inquisitive as to what can be done to be on pleasant terms with you, especially if you are open to the idea of creating a legal mural area, since he is a talented artist and often lacks the opportunity to paint his pieces legally.

    beezy the best thing for him and anyone is to simply stay away from my buildings. the damage caused to the interior has put my schedule back 3 days costing me time and material. i feel that i have been disrespected. the projects across the street where people live has been disrespected. we have several mutual friends as i have found out over the past several days. one i have known for over 18 years. i provided beer,food and music and my place got trashed. im glad he feels remorseful for the interior, just wish he felt the same way about the exterior. that’s the most time consuming to clean.

    im not interested in providing a wall for people to come tag at any time. we have tenants in the building and have a relationship with the city and community. i dont think allowing PBJ or other taggers to use the place as a haven is in my interest or the communities. again the best advice i can give them is to stay away.

    Dick Blick, Utrecht, and Hobby Lobby all sell canvas and materials to paint on. http://www.dickblick.com/categories/canvas/

    He can also go to any building supply place and buy materials to build his own wall and paint art all he wants. http://www.columbuscoal.com/

    yeah, sorry, Sherm slipped a post in there between mine and the photo link. should quoted to avoid confusion.

    Let’s not pass this off as a case of ‘oops, didn’t know this wasn’t abandoned’ mis-identity. This happened while there were people using the building. C’mon.

    I am so sick of this “give them their own wall” argument. What is it supposed to accomplish? I’ve mentioned before that there’s a garage in my neighborhood with an open invitation for people to paint graffiti on it. It doesn’t have any affect on the constant tagging in even the immediate vicinity.

    Shall I put a few items I don’t care so much about on my front porch, so that people might “steal” those and not take things from my house?

    WTFingF?!

    How about not painting on stuff that isn’t yours?

    Ok “beezy” tell your very sorry friend who feels just terrible he/she can fix this very simply:

    Step 1: Go to any Lowes or Home Depot
    Step 2: Purchase some cement, one shovel and several pallets of blocks
    Step 3: Go to his home and build his canvas (or grandmammy’s, parents, lovers, favorite homie, etc…)
    Step 4: Create his masterpiece
    Step 5: Paint over, and repeat

    Voila, problem solved! Now mail me my $25K consulting fee. Thanks.
