Not again! Jail threat to foreign graffiti artists at Chiang Mai cave

Recommended Posts

I thought foreigners dont really go to national parks because of racist pricing. Maybe im wrong and im sorry to say that many thais graffiti in english. My ex loved to draw graphitti, tattos and such. She always tagged in english. She wasnt a graphitti artist spraying up the place but deep in all arty farty stuff...

Looks like it was scratched on and a bit of creative covering up will do until it fades with time.  Yes they were stupid morons for doing it but there are an awful lot of stupid morons out there.  Not so much an intentional act of vandalism, rather a pathetic attempt to literally leave their mark. 

 

A suitable fine and a ban from returning to Thailand for a few years should be a sufficient price for these idiots to pay.

where's Banksy when you need him? He might have to write 'boing' several times though for them to understand his art.

So, there are plenty of thieves and criminals and fraudsters walking free, and the concern is about some tourists writing names on a rock..ok.. the mind boggles.

But - it's a 1.8 billion year old "Thai rock" that was disfigured!.  The horror!

Its sad this Graffiti business, I've lived in South East Asia for 26 years (residing in Vientiane), now generally speaking "Ouote" ... Generally Speaking, there is very little Graffiti painted around Asia and Thailand, yeah, some ... but a fraction what you see in Western Countries, along with the Theft of Vehicles, they are stolen in Thailand for financial gain, in other Countries, Australia in particular, they are stolen for joy rides, burning out the tires, blowing up the motors and finally dumped in a canal or river, trashing somebodies office for no reason doesn't 'generally' happen here, when a mate of mine had his office in Soi 24 trashed, immediately all his associates said" Ohhh Ohhh who has he upset, .... he claimed nobody ... then it came out that he won a small claims case in court about a month ago against a Thai Business man .... we all sighed ... "arrhh ... that was it ... we were worried that the trait's of the white man had come to Bangkok" !

Have they caught the offenders yet?

As I understand it 'Big Joke' has commandeered the entire first class cabin of a Thai Air A380 and will be taking his team over to France as soon as possible.

Someone should sneak into a cave and write Prayuth and Prawits name somewhere prominent. Add Sutheps for good measure.

In Thai of course

I can show you a number of places in Chiang Mai that are predominately tagged by Thais.  This is not a farang only issue although the media is framing this a exactly that.  But how often do we hear of a BIB manhunt for Thai graffiti artists in the media?  I can't think of any, but correct me if I'm off base.

If Thailand wished to be proactive, they would pass out a brochure listing all the stupid things that farangs and foreigners often do while visiting that will get them into trouble as well as spelling out the fines and jail times for each - and then have each passenger sign that they understand before they disembark their plane. 

Exactly never hear of Thais doing wrong! As you say there's graffiti all over Chiang Mai and yes it lowers the tone of the place and again it's not just farangs!😡

Out of interest, how did you manage to stay in Vientiane? I’d like to do that, I really liked the place.

People who do this should be caught, and given the maximum sentence possible, then banned for life. 

 

Wow tough justice !

I wonder what you would propose for those who seize the country at gunpoint , restrict human rights , cancel elections etc ?
