Tagger writes ‘Fuck your gay art’ over beautiful Clarion Alley mural

A reader explains:

Long-time local artist/muralist icon MATS!? (Mats Stromberg) attempted to repair his Clarion Alley mural yesterday. Later that same evening, this happened: http://j.mp/1mevTwl. (Why yes, that does say “Fuck your gay art”— a testament to the maturity of the tagger.)

As someone commented on Facebook: “I find it Ironic that this guy is targeted Mats Stromberg of all people…. His comics and art are all about the living at the bottom of the barrel…. and in clarion alley no less…” Indeed.

Sad shit. Mats!? rules!

    This is why we can’t have nice things.

    Artists should do what Jet Martínez does, clear coat.

  3. Multiphasic says:

    Technically, the tagger is urging us to “fuck gay your art,” which sounds moderately more appealing.

    Blake was such a nice boy

      Not even close…tagging died in the late 80′s in NYC.

      Tags by upwardly mobile white kids are lame. Yeah you BKF.

    • wakeup says:

      No, any artist with half an ounce of respect for their work doesn’t write some grade school nonsense over others’ work. This is a child’s work, either literally or mentally, there’s no art in defacing someone else’s art.

      yeah, for 12-year-olds

  6. Sanity says:

    Tagging is not the same as a mural, or even graffiti. It is vandalism, typically by someone with inferiority issues.

  7. StillHatesSF says:

    Maybe he meant ‘gay’ as in happy and the tagger is asking for sad murals.

  8. Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

    Fucking scumbag taggers. MrEric is right. This is why we can’t have nice things.

    Clearly, this is the fault of people in the technology industry as we should stop shuttle busses to address this issue.

    Most of the douchbaggery in this city seems to be done by the Bridge and Tunnel crowd.
