Graffiti Intervention Team Set up in Zagreb

unnamedNegative, abusive graffiti, the City Council hopes, will over time completely disappear from Zagreb…

The City Council of the Croatian capital Zagreb have set up a graffiti intervention team who will go around removing negative graffiti in the city.

Set up Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandić, the team will be charged with canvassing the town and removing offensive graffiti. One of the group’s members, Alen Ostojić, explains that the idea is not to ban graffiti altogether.

“We do not want to ban graffiti. In Vienna artists, for example, will send suggestions to the City Council of what they would like to draw and the Council will give them materials and the space to do it on,” said Ostojić told Vecernji list, adding the team will likely start sorting out the negative graffiti in the lower town, where there is the biggest concentration.

Ostojić hopes that over time Zagreb will be completely free of negative, hate graffiti, but not artist works.
