Vandalism is defined as malicious, mindless injury to or destruction of public or private property.
I believe there is an underlying frustration and lack of direction in the minds of these perpetrators. Peer pressure, alcohol and boredom are probably the main culprits.
I am so grateful to be an artist where boredom is never an issue - where my frustrations can be assuaged by drawing, painting, experimenting with colour and brush strokes.
Wouldn't it be nice to have art centres where culprits (if caught) would be sent to for a set number of hours. Paints, brushes and paper would be available for them to vent their feelings and maybe in the end become real artists.
