    Default Graffiti artist who decorated city building, wins in court

    A LIVERPOOL graffiti artist who painted walls for the Biennial arts festival has been cleared of criminal damage charges.

    The artist, who goes by the name of Stok, had faced jail after using a building in Roscoe Street to display his artwork.

    Prosecutors at Liverpool magistrate's court argued permission was not granted for use of the city centre building, a charge that Stok always denied.

    All charges relating to the property, which was not part of the Biennial festival, were dismissed at trial through lack of evidence.

    Stok, who has been an artist for over 20 years, said: "The days of the blanket use of the word 'graffiti', are numbered - street art is bigger than that.

    "I've never been so happy in all my life and am completely relieved at the out-come of the situation.

    "This result truly is a victory for the common man."

    The ECHO first featured the spray can expert in April, with arts chiefs hailing the regeneration of dowdy and derelict areas of the city through art.

    Stok now plans to work alongside community based art programme The Art Organisation in preparation for next year's Biennial.

    Art Organisation director Gregory Scott-Gurner said Stok now had full permission to decroate the Roscoe Street building.

    He said: "Our aim is to make opportunity where opportunity may not exist.

    "We work with and for local communities, with the help of local artists to change places in need of regeneration and add beauty to areas that have been left to ruin."

    Stok's solicitor Jeremy Hawthorn said: "My client is pleased to have been rightfully cleared of all charges after having the case proceeding some four months.


    ADVERTISING




    "As a community artist it came as a great surprise that he was to be the subject of a possible criminal prosecution, which is not in the spirit of the business to which he is involved.

    "I am certain if the prosecution had examined the case thoroughly the case would not have been brought."

    No-one from building owners Frenson's was available for comment.

    Default Liverpool Graffiti Art

    BANKSY is a world renowned, Bristol-based graffiti artist whose artwork is often political and/or humorous in nature. ART thieves disguised as workmen tried to steal the door from a derelict Liverpool building - because it was decorated by graffiti artist Banksy.

    He's quite famous and has a few images in Liverpool City Centre. Has anyone got any?

    I love Banksy's stuff, but I think he's losing it nowadays. The painting of an elephant at his LA exhibition was way out of order. I emailed his website and asked how he'd feel if he was stripped naked and painted all over. Still waiting for a reply

    I like his stuff, especially this...

    The security barrier separating the occupied territories from Israel is over 450 miles long and 38ft high. It was deemed illegal by the International Court of Justice but construction by the Israeli government continues.

    Probably because the majority of people never look above eye-level and never notice anything remotely suspicious. A guy with a ladder and a paintbucket doesn't exactly draw attention - he could do the bulk of it with it just looking like a big black splodge... then finish it off and run!

    Thanks Kev.. I will start another thread...

    And back on track... Have another Banksy pic!

    Controversial British graffiti artist BANKSY has made fun of MICHAEL JACKSON in a new drawing which went on exhibition in London yesterday (01DEC06).Banksy's drawing is inspired by classic children's tale HANSEL AND GRETEL and features Jackson, who was acquitted of child molestation last year (05), crouching in the doorway of a cottage holding out a sweet (candy) to a young girl and boy.The shock artist - famed for doctoring 500 copies of PARIS HILTON's debut album PARIS - says, "I feel the spirit of Christmas was being lost. It was becoming increasingly uncommercialised more and more."His Jackson drawing is displayed in Santa's Grotto, which is exhibiting graffiti, art and sculpture.
