art faggot cunt, why take out that old Ejek that's been there for years
The council aren't being cool by paying for these they're just making a lot of walls look identical in a different way-by paying the SAME street artist to paint VERY SIMILAR paintings over and over.Similar to the whole legal trackside spots suggested in that ER article, it ain't real graff (IMO)!!Peace.
totally, i think its stupid how smug is supposed to be a 'graffiti artist' but he is being paid to mulsh over an ejek dub that has been there for years, scrappy mulshh job at that. yet ER still paint with the guy, maybe they dont mind, in my opinion the scene is fucked
they should at least commision rogue to do something like this, seeing as he has beenn involved in the glasgow scene for so long and is also good at this photo realistic stuff the council like
smug is great at paintin, no doubt, but im kinda gettin pissed off with this shit now. a few murals is alright but that spot was full of graff and hes just taken it all out. hes basically just become part of the buff now. im sure wed all do it for the money hes gettin offered but he cant expect this shit to last while hes buffin cunts all over the place
on the dot ^^
this a mural using spray paint. no link to graffiti at all. using spray paint does not automatically make it graffiti. no letters, no style to talk of just copying from a pic putting it on a wall and claiming it as your own. a very high standard of can skills but outwith that.
it's fucked man, smug works for the glasgow city council. he is fuck all to do with ER and the only person from the crew that paints with him on a regular basis is ESTM. Glasgow City Council pay smug thousands and thousands of pounds to paint this photorealistic samey bullshit over CLASSIC glasgow graffiti spots, in my opinion these murals might aswell be gray liek the buff. we should start bombing these walls up, but apparently there is a coat of anti graffiti stuff over the top of all the murals so that when they are bombed, the paint wipes off with water. fuck em man
cunt isnt even from scotland, theres plenty good scottish artist in glasgow that could be commissioned to do alote more exciting work than this photorealism bollocks, but no glasgow city council wants to pay some 'smug' arsehole from the other side of the world. no pride atall.
I agree, I dont think there is a special anti graffiti film on the murals though, they just look like normal paint close up, iv been dying to see som eone throw a bucket of mulsh over the murals to bring the spots back to life, it should just be done
No need to hate on Smug for being from another country, he lives in glasgow like all the other glasgow writers so it makes no difference where he was born. the thing that does piss me off though is that Smug probly got his can control so tight because where he's from there's actually fucking legal walls. there are tons of writers in glasgow who would love to get that good but the council wont provide them with anywhere to learn, meanwhile they think smug's work is the fuckin bees knees.I also agree that there's a thin line between doin some murals and become part of the buff. im all for writers gettin paid for what they do, but smug is taking up major wall space in good spots with this shit.
Most of the walls that Smug has been payed to paint by the council have been regular painting spots for over 10+ yrs. Within the 10 yrs etc those walls have been painted again and again, people going over the last guy etc so why treat Smug any different.Maybe since he is being paid for the repetative work that he's not gonna give a fuck if it gets touched, After all im sure he doesnt class that kinda work as his graffiti work.If all the "council" work got painted over im sure the only people that would really care would be the Council as it would turn out for them to be a huge waste of money and something they couldnt keep paying out for if it wasnt an effective method of tackling problem spots
Dont like that one bit! it/he is the buff he is going over good graff with white paint and leaveing it! have a word old boy..how would he like it if some cunt went over his shit that was rocking for over 3 years and left..with a blank wall.. revenge is in order if you ask me!
-No hating on smug personally, anyone could have been paid to paint murals. It isn't his choice where he paints, it's the councils. he isn't going to turn around and refuse money for a job. I'm sure he'd rather it wasn't graff he was going over but "A grand don't come for free". -I'm curious about his thoughts after he's been paid, finished the job and the council are happy, I wonder how concerned he is about the condition of the murals after he's got his money? Is he paid to maintain the walls if they get dogged, weather or fade? -This is a spot I'd rather remained the way it was, but I wouldn't go over it. - However there are rumours that Smug is to be given Bridge street to work on ... this is a different story. If Bridge street goes, I will seriously consider re claiming. I know it's out of order to take out paintings that took so long to paint and are so and technically accomplished. BUT. We're never going to have another cake throw, or see any more stuff from a lot of the writers on that wall. - If it happens, taking out smug will be a lot easier and more acceptable in my opinion and I'm sure will be on the cards for a number of people.
Lets not forget he has a choice and could easily say no to the council. Smug gets plenty of work and money from other sources yet he still chooses to take out these walls for the cash and doesnt give a fuck about what he is taking out. If he did, he would turn down the commission. Smug doesnt give a fuck about anyone but himself and selling out his fat arse for a few quid. All his walls are fair game.
Yeah he should just turn down a stack of paint and a few grand ... just to make sure he doesn't disgruntle some low life graff sprayers.
^^^LOL you say a stack of paint like he wants that, with the sort of large scale stuff he's doing I doubt he cares about materials in the way you or I would care about getting that amount of paint for a job. Point is- as others have said, I don't think painting matters to him in the same way as it matters to us and that is why it's not like it's just some really good graff on the tunnel. It IS just a glorified buff.
shrewd move on the council's part, if anyone goes over the smug murals it'll just prove their views as right and they'll never agree to the legal wall that the scene wants/needs but if we leave it untouched they can take all the time they want to decide then still say no in the end. it's working as well, we can't win either way so they totally have us by the baws...
it's the sort of negative attitude towards basic creativity that is displayed above that hold the scottish scene back.I bet not a single person responsible for the above posts has even half of the ability that Smug has, and so fucking what if he is not Scottish, you could probably learn a thing or two from him. as for people not being able to practice their so called can control because he is taking up all the good spots? sounds like your making excuses for your lack of dedication to going out and finding your own spots. alot of the encounters I have had with REAL writers in Scotland have shown me that creativity breads creativity and all this shit talking is just leaving the Scottish scene in the dust of other UK cities.
