Elmer Fudd & Donald Duck - Haz

Legal Wall Showcase Now seems like a good right time for a showcase of the murals & tags that appeared on the Legal Wall, an area set aside for all comers to demonstrate and advertise their skill with a can of spray paint.

Tegan Desporte's "Untitled Acrylic" sits along Park Street nestled between Dan Kitcheners "Liquid Lights" mural & Argentina's Fio Silva's "Rattlesnake" her simple geometrical shapes and stripes are very vivid and strong but easily missed next to its larger neighbours.
