Mladic spotted in Sremcica

While I deplore the vast majority of graffiti that can be found in urban environments the world over I have nothing against this kind of graffiti. There are 2 reasons for this. First of all it is asthetically appealing, unlike the vast majority of crud that fills walls and deadens the senses. Secondly it actually has a message and a meaning. The sad gangs of yobs who roam around breaking the law dont even do it for any particular reason. They just end up 'tagging' some nickname which is unique to them. It cant even be construed as marking out territory because you can find 100 different tags on one wall. So when I see something like this mural of Mladic it is a stark contrast to the pointless and ugly eyesores usually assosciated with graffiti. So congratulations to the boys who did this, hopefully there will be more to come. If I have any criticisms its that they didnt paint the entire wall and cover up all the stuff around the image. We should take our cue from the people of Northern Ireland, they have many beatiful murals which give character to their residential areas, and a sense of community. In an age where governments try and impose views on people this is one small way to show some defiance. So when Tadic wants to arrest Serbian war heroes so that he can enter into a union with people that bombed us this is one way of sticking our middle fingers up to him. Hopefully the general will appreciate the support also. Incidentally I was in Sremcica this summer, full of Serbs resettled from Kosovo and Bosnia.
Heres the article in Serbian:

Indeed, graffiti without a message is the equivalent of urinating on a wall.

It tends to be juvenile deliquents who conform to this modern trend and new relief of boredom.

To critizise those whom define such acts as "art", If "art" is graffiti than so is urinating randomly all over the place.

It is a crime of our society and in my opinion, juveniles should be punished like adults to deter them from such acts in the future.

With reference to the "Mladic graffiti", in a society where politically correctness rules, depictions of heroes are necessary to illustrate the truth with out the filtering of the media which it always does with words.
