But does Cork love the tireless tagger back? Tripe + Drisheen goes on a walkabout with Chippy, one of Cork's busiest graffiti artists.
This tagger has vandalised tens of thousands of euro of public and private property in Cork City making it look tatty and tired. As many of us try to fight against the dereliction in the city this is a desperately depressing article. He even admits his tags are devoid of any artistic merit (as is the majority of graffiti). This is the equivalent of a dog lifting its leg and peeing around the city. I and so many other despise every one of his tags. Why do you need to tell everybody about your 'achievement' when you climb up a building? Film yourself climbing it and put it online instead of trying to destroy our city.
And the BS about not destroying heritage buildings. You put one on the first floor of the beautiful French Connection building on Patrick Street. Absolutely pointless and enraging for those of us who love our city.
Nice to hear from CHIPPY <3
