It seems to me the painting illustrate something like a group of ‘skin head’ teenagers

Whom need some room of freedom from their noisy parents/guardian..

    Its an ‘art crime’ (some people say..) But it is not for me.. This is just an activity for some group of youngsters especially those in an urban areas…Ive stayed in UK for couple of years…and I saw lots of these in the urban and sub urban areas…some are so beautiful and it is not easy you know..u really need a ‘skill’ to do this….and of course time lah….MELEPAK DAN BEREMBUN tak kira masa……

    Tulah, kalu sia tau sepa yg bikin…mau jugak sia join bah!

    sofea,
    I’m willing to participate for some garfiti works FREE of charge if I had a chance here, but only for official one lah, not the illegal one.

    Daniel,

    oh yeah, i saw them and i also admire them. if they are troubled teens, i hope social welfare services can find them. talent like that should be encouraged and nurtured. though not necessarily on abandoned buildings. it does make the dull area very artsy and quaint.

    haha..they are not some troubled teens..they were art student at one of local college here in kota Kinabalu. They are very talented group of teens and at the moment some of them doing a freelance work. I google around to find some pictures of their graffiti at the abandoned buildings then bump into this site, good..at least we clear on something.cheers!
