I am a big fan of quirky ideas and ways to present art. And I feel that Miss Samantha Lo has achieved that in what she allegedly did.
In a country that is always trying to bring in talents and tourists from all over the world to boost the economy, I feel these art works were very appropriate.
Some of the tourists must have seen the stickers and the spray painting on the road as something refreshing and creative.
There was nothing offensive in the language used and it was true blue Singaporean. I thought it was very funny.
At the same time, I am against vandalism and damaging of private property in any form.
If someone were to spray paint any "art" on my door without my permission, I would be fuming mad even if it is a nice piece of artwork.
If Miss Lo wants to portray her art in this way, she should get permission from the relevant authorities.
There is a fine line between vandalism and art. It depends on one's interpretation and the situation.
Maybe the authorities should consider her intentions and impose a lighter charge on her than vandalism.
