Lack of Respect for ART


The stunning wildlife artwork created by David Houghton Art along the Redcliffe Peninsula rail line shared pathway has been one of the latest victims of graffiti artists.

Lack-of-respect-for-ARTThe iconic murals were painted so that local residents could appreciate their aesthetic appeal on the shared pathway but also as a deterrent for vandalism.

The graffiti is not only an eyesore, as graffiti normally is but it also distracted from the underlying art, much to the dismay of local residents.

Division 4 Councillor Julie Greer said it was extremely disappointing to see the shared path murals defaced by graffiti and that council took a zero tolerance approach to graffiti in public spaces.

“Council crews were quick to action and have since removed the graffiti,” Cr Greer said.

“If you see graffiti along the shared pathway and in other publics spaces, I encourage you to report it to council as soon as possible for maintenance crews to action.”

Council officers captured images of the graffiti and tags before removing them to assist police in identifying known tags.
