It is amazing how artistic some graffiti can be, yet others are just vandalism.

Its very good but I always wonder where these graffiti artist get there money from to buy the spray paint.

Because its not cheap to buy and dosent go very far.

Mick, there's a place in Orchard Road, called the Xtreme Youth Park, where graffiti artists do their work on the walls there. It's free for the public to see. And these artists are funded by a charity organization. Anyone can make a donation for them to pursue what they loved doing.

Hiya Sheda

Greetings to you in my particular Shangri-la !!! Miss Singapore a lot.
But Sheda, when I was there if anyone was caught doing this in other places it meant a public flogging and total humiliation...is that still the case???... there never used to be any anywhere else in the Lion City. (Temasek... I nearly called my house that )
Love Tricia

Good picture Dad, it must have taken quite a while to do all that.

Hiya Tricia, how are ya doing?
The rules are quite relax now, not so much of public flogging or total humiliation. However if you do it at places such as housing estates, you would still get caught and fined. That is why the government has built some parks specifically for these artists to showcase their talents.
