Im getting really bored with Smug paintings now, not for the obvious reasons ie the council buff but for the fact that what he paints are just pure global crowd pleasers.
Every painting has the same old formula of photo-realist characters and the odd weak letter peice.
Once youve seen a couple you've pretty much seen them all. Id maybe repect him more if he was trying out something new and pushing himself but in my opinion he's doing nothing new graffiti wise and certainly doesnt entitle him to claim he's a uk graf king on a certain recent magazine cover haha.
Its obviously he's got great technical ability, I just dont think hes got the originality.
I dont blame him though for doing what he does coz no-ones really challenging him and its easy for him to get the fame that way.

I didnt type this reply to start another Smug hate thread. Its purley my opinion on just another glasgow writer.

Fuck the fame, hes in it for the cash and i would be too if i was him. Still a wank though.

Aye your right, the moneys probably a big thing for him but thats because its a job and im sure everyone would take the cash if they were offered. I think the fame is a big thing for him too though. If you look on any of his facebook posts or flickr pics, its full of people bigging him up from all over the globe, which no doubt would give you a bit of an ego problem which maybe makes him a bit of a wank to some people!
Personally I find him quite easy to ignore.
Haha very diplomatic there.

smug is a talented artist but just because the media he uses is spray paint dose not make him a writer i would love for once to see him do something illegal even if he has to change the word he uses!
