Victoria’s shiny new Johnson Street Bridge opened to traffic on March 31st…and less than a month later, it’s already been tagged.
Reddit user Silly_Goose2 spotted the graffiti on one of the inner flanks of the bridge and posted a photo to the discussion website, garnering mixed reviews from commenters.
While some users expressed their approval and maintained that the bridge “would actually look cool” with more street art (says redditor insouciant01), others disagree: “This is why we can’t have nice things” states user corvus7corax.
We get it folks: the clean white bridge looks like a tempting blank slate for artists. But the City probably won’t look too kindly upon those who use this $105 million structure to express themselves.
What do you think about this latest target for street artists?
