Young offenders' mural brightens up The Cut
27 March 2004
London SE1 website team -- Home Page feature.
Inmates from a young offenders' institute have created a mural to be displayed at Southwark Station as part of a London Underground community project.
If these teenagers did this before they were arrested it would be condemned as unsightly graffiti. But as they're convicted burglars and muggers it's 'art'. Only joking.
It displaced a Rolf Harris painting! -- chuck me a tinnie cobber.
I saw it last week and wondered where Rolf's masterpiece had gone (big fan of Rolf. Only "One Man and His Dog" could be more welcome in the Sunday late afternoon TV slot).
Couldn't we keep Rolf and let them put the mural somewhere else (like in the young offenders' institute they've just got out from. Bet that could do with brightening up more than the outside of Southwark tube station)
