SMRT Train Vandalised!

This is the first time in history, a Mass Rapid Transports (MRT)in Singapore being vandalised externally.


According to the source from the Straits times, it was vandalised at a depot in a restricted area amounted with array of barriers, including fences topped with barbed wire.

The vandal suspected to be a 33-year-old Swiss national, sneaked into the sprawling depot at Changi. The elaborate graffiti was on one side of a train, across one carriage. More news at Straits times.

Once again this maybe adding on a bad name in Street graffiti which the last time such action in the act of advertisement by Singpost, the public didn't take it well. With this new act of vandalism especially from a foreigners who do it intentionally, local Street Graffits artist maybe having a hard time with their works and passion.

It seems many have forgotten about the case of a foreigner preformed a vandalism act, Michael P. Fay. A decade of years later, Vandalism act by a foreigner happened again and this time on a Singapore Public Transport blatantly without respect on local authority.

Even in the name of art, one should be accountable of his own action. Now we have to let the law proceeding to set things in place.

Vandalism is bad, but I have to admit that the graffiti looks great.
