Graffiti

Kreatiaf? Mungkin tidak. Lebih tepat vandalisme. Manalah saya tak membebel apabila ada hamba Allah nak meluahkan perasaannya melalui graffiti di tembok rumah saya dan jiran....


Tembok kiri - rumah jiran di belakang rumah saya

Di tembok rusuk rumah saya

Saya pasti artis yang tak sesiapa pun mentauliahkannya, telah menampilkan bakatnya pada malam 07/08/13. Ini kerana pada senja hari itu, sebelum berbuka puasa, saya telah pergi ke belakang rumah untuk mencari kucing saya, Caca. Masa tu apa pun tiada pada dinding itu. Tut...Tut...Keesokan hari Menteri Dalam Negeri memaklumkan kewujudan graffiti tersebut. Terdapat 4 'paint-spray cans' di luar rumah saya. Depa sanggup berbelanja RM32 (~RM8/can). Kan elok duit itu disedekah kepada mereka yang memerlukan daripada menyakiti hati orang. Tak tahulah apa yang mendorong mereka berkreatif.

'Marbler'? Apa kata kamus Webster's Revised '... 
n.1.One who works upon marble or other stone.
2.One who colors or stains in imitation of marble.'

Apa pula maksud '42O'? Jawabnya layarilah Wikipedia '....4204:20, or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) is a code-term used primarily in North America that refers to the consumption of cannabis and by extension, as way to identify oneself with cannabis subculture or simply cannabis itself. Observances based on the number 420 include smoking cannabis around the time 4:20 p.m. (with some sources also indicating 4:20 a.m.[1][2]), on any given day, as well as smoking cannabis on the date April 20 (4/20 in American form).[3]'

Jangan salahkan saya mengandaikan pelukis graffiti ini terlibat dalam kegiatan tak sihat. I really wonder siapalah mereka ini semua. Mereka sanggup mengeluarkan ongkos dan bersekang mata dikala penghuni rumah nyenyak dibuai mimpi hanya untuk meluahkan apa yang ada dalam pemikiran mereka. Sayang sekali usaha mereka tidak mendapat pengiktirafan dan penghargaan oleh sesiapa, terutama saya.

Judging from the amount of graffiti painted on both walls I do not believe the 4 spray cans were full. This rascal must have picked some left over cans from some where to do this mischief. Perhaps he
has been doing vandalism in others places and and your wall was the last to empty the cans ! !

As for the meaning of '420' it also refers to Malaysian penal code? It is cheating a person with criminal intimidation. Why he wrote this number only he knows ! !

In Singapore any kind of graffiti on public or private property is considered as Vandalism and carries a mandatory three to eight strokes of a cane and a fine of up to SG$2,000 Singapore dollars ($1,437) or up to three years in jail. Some years back I remember Singapore sentenced a Swiss man Oliver Fricker, 32 to three strokes of a cane ( rotan) and five months in prison for spray-painting graffiti on a subway carriages. However in our country I have never heard of any one caught and punished for this type of crime although you can find graffiti on buildings / bridges / walls etc etc .

Why do people do graffiti ? Google Search says:
Some people think it's cool or they are trying to impress other people. Some people do it to become more popular or to defy authority. Some people want to express their frustration, anger or revenge and don't know how else to do it. ( If I may add your nice clean and white painted wall is a real temptation for these irresponsible people, what more the area is sandwiched between your neighbors wall and gives good cover to these Manusia tak Tanggong Jawab )
