Teenager blames graffiti on not having anywhere to display art
A teenager has blamed his graffiting on people not wanting to put his art in a gallery.
The teen was caught on video camera vandalising a Metro train window in Australia by a passenger whilst he was being confronted by another commuter about his law-breaking behaviour.
The youth claimed he had "nowhere else" to be creative in a way that people would see.
The teen had carved out letters in the glass and when was told to express his creativity on canvass or easel, he replied: "Who's going to see it, who's going to hang me in a gallery?"
The footage of the incident was handed to police.
A Metro spokesman told Daily Mail Australia: "It is so disappointing to have an incident of this nature occurring as we have been working so hard to eliminate graffiti and vandalism on our trains."
