18 years old,  28 years old,  38 years old,  48 years old,  58 years old and counting!  This is hardly worth getting peoples knickers in a twist over is it?  Just consider the horrendous stuff that goes on in Thailand every day, much of which is reported on Thai Visa.

I agree.

 

He was adding his artwork to a wall that was already designated for such art.

 

It might be termed graffiti but it is not knocking down people and not stopping: or hurting a 5 year old by deliberately scalding him is it; or dumping trash into the river or forest?

 

I personally would not do it but I've done things here that I could be deported for.

 

He probably sought permission to express his artwork but misunderstood the station master's reply.

 

Let's all get a life!

Oh yeah! Shoot them, twice ........but very, very slowly.

Then hang 'em, rape and deport 'em.

(Oh cane 'em should be in there somewhere too). 

Assuming irony or am making too many assumptions as I appear to have done with the self confessed retired judge in an earliearlier post. One never knows on tv unfortunately!

It is.

 

The cave dwellers did it. 

As is pop art, op art, installation art, and performance art but I doubt the typical contributors on here would agree.

As another poster mentioned that particular building has been daubed with rubbish graffiti for yonks. Maybe the British gentleman was trying to enhance it?!

Absolutely! Seems many on here really don't have much of a life here and should get out a lot lot more or perhaps get out of here entirely!

Nothing makes an area look more like a slum than graffiti, it's never 'art' it's an imposed eye sore always. I think the punishment needed to be more like 400.000 if only to deter other idiots.

What a piece of garbage and at 38 he should be over immature ways.  Vandals should be put up against the wall and shot

Harumph! Good show ol 'bean. Spoken like any decent authoritarian in a military dictatorship. If your wife/boyfriend uses cosmetics, do the same rules apply?

You haven't seen some of the surreal paint jobs I've woken up with on some mornings.

You make to many assumptions 

 

"were" no, current , yes 

 

"open minded" yes , but perhaps unlike you,  I do believe in the rule of law. 

 

Capital punishment does exist for homicide cases and the jury makes the decision. 

 

Since I don't drive when I am in Thailand , it's doubful I will be making any minor motoring offense. 

 

I've already been in a Thai jail and the Bangkok Hilton ....to observe , as a guest of the Thai Minister of Justice that was in one of my law classes in the USA. 

oh ! You're from the US - explains everything!

If it was within my power to do so, I would make him repaint the wall, then have him work in a very uncomfortable labouring environment such as road building or jungle clearing, before shipping him back home. Graffiti is simply vandalism and if tolerated, can only lead to more serious disregard for any laws.

Only 4000. He can consider himself very lucky. 

The paint wouldn't even cost that to a farang! He should have bought the paint, done the painting and got some cane!

he should have been given a plane ticket to Singapore with a couple of spray cans.

It nice to come to Thailand to get away from this trash one finds in ones own country. Vandelising the beauty that gives pleasure to others is unacceptable. He should have been sent to prison as well or immediately thrown out of the country. He probably speeks fluent English, but is more likely Polish with that name.
