Graffiti Problems

First Published:

If your project site has potential graffiti problems (or has problems) consider hiring some street artists to paint murals on those walls with graffiti problems.

  • When painted well, graffiti is less likely to be put there as there is already good art.
  • It makes the site more attractive.
  • If it discourages graffiti, it may work out less expensive than continually repainting the areas to cover graffiti.
  • An example is the electrical boxes around Brisbane, Australia. They have all been painted with different topical, sometimes funny, always creative pictures. Very little graffiti is put on them now, and they make a very attractive addition to the street.
