AN URBAN homeowner is insisting he loves the graffiti that has appeared on his wall.
Before purchasing the property, Tom Booker told friends he was looking forward to living in a gritty neighbourhood with real character and was quick to confirm his joy at the random images and scrawl.
Booker said: “One of the best things about buying in a real, living neighbourhood is the pop-up art around the place. I’m not at all annoyed there is now some on the house I saved up for years to buy.
“There’s a really raw, edgy quality to it. They’ve obviously gone to a lot of trouble drawing that stylised dog. Or it could be a machine gun. It’s hard to tell.
“OK it’s not a Banksie but it definitely adds character. On the cock they’ve drawn the balls aren’t symmetrical but the bellend is pretty much perfect.”
Friend Francesca Johnson said: “There’s no way Tom really likes the graffiti, but then he did claim the potholes filled with McDonald’s wrappers on his road were ‘indicative of a thriving community’.”
