We'll now be acosted by the usual, "you don't appreciate art" bullshit.

That's cultural vandalism. The building is an art deco example from 1931. Daubing graffiti all over it is not art. And it's badly executed as well, as evidenced by the messy finish of where the plinth meets the main structure.

The Singers Building is much more professionally done and works much better. This is just shite.

Fully in agreement m8.


A shoddy job that has taken away from the entire area.

Abstract done well can be a beauty to behold. Thats just crap.

It's an eyesore - stands out from the rest of the buildings. Only not in a good way.
