Robocop gets stopped by Newtown Police

Sunday night @ Dendy carpark in Newtown, around midnight:

I was nearby and heard some spray cans rattling, this amazing huge stencil was being painted. I had a great chat and found out about some great stencilling techniques. It was an honour to meet these people, but then...

Police turned up playing bad cop good cop. It was scary and very sad.


Next day I went to Dendy and spoke to the girl out front she would not let me speak to manager. If Dendy got stencils like these on their carpark they would not have to pay to repaint tags and scrbbles all the time. The stencils could be all movie related like this one! how cool would that be?

but the girl refused to let me see the manager... is newtown being converted to a sterile yuppie land? are we living in V times?


needless to say the stencil is missing its final layer of metallic light blue, the Police didn't let them finish it.
