Skateboards and spray paint vs. hand guns.

Portland Police are upset that a skateboard shop also sells (expensive) spray paint, as they see skateboarding and graffiti culture intertwined. The cops say The Office is tacitly encouraging graffiti by selling the spray paint. The Office says their paint is expensive and therefore typically used by commissioned artists rather than your garden variety high school delinquent. I hate taggers and I hate graffiti, but I like stencil art. Normally I wouldn’t bother to report on this but I thought The Office’s manager, Kevin Nimick, made a good point:

“I don’t want to go head to head with the police,” says Nimick. “But they’re just trying to have a place to direct blame for Portland’s graffiti. Why not ban the sale of handguns, if they’re worried about people getting shot?”

With a spot of Plasti-kote spray paint and minimal artistic know-how we can take you through the process in 7 easy stages and at a fraction of the cost of buying a brand new board.All you need to create that killer look is some Plasti-kote spray paint, sticky backed plastic and masking tape. In this example we’ve used Super White Primer and Super Pacific Blue but why not have some fun with our Fluorescents Range or go mad with our Metallics Range, the options are endless.

    they should start selling little kids’ graffiti colorbooks, you know, to corrupt them when they’re young. http://www.babywit.com/coloringbooks.html

  2. Can you say Scapegoat?

  3. You all should be ashamed of yourselves! Graffiti isn’t about corruption or killing or anything like that. It’s about ART. ART it is and ART it shall remain!

  4. It can be ART, sometimes it’s chimps smearing their shit on the walls of their cage. Still waiting to see some ART at Pier Park. Only on non-skating surfaces please.

  5. ART
