Firstly an apology if anyone reading this is involved in public art.
But I have a major gripe with it.
It seems kind of fashionable these days to put public art in all sorts of public construction and situations these days and due to this it all reads very token and well there is some really bad shit out there.
I know the whole idea is to keep grants going and a big back slap to the developers for being culturally aware but most of it is insulting and basically visual pollution. I realise some will regard this as aesthetic judgement and each to their own but really most of it reads as an unconsidered piss take , money grab tax right off.
Ive considered in a stoner moment of taging bad public art with 'FUCK PUBLIC ART'
