I’m a big admirer of art, and I’ve often defended its reason to be, when I spoke with people from my country of origin. But this? Pure vandalism, if you want my opinion. At any rate, you got it.

Did that artist express himself or just ruin a place where parents could take their children for a run?
Is this a physical way to “show, don’t tell?” – the tool all performing writing artists must have in their box?
I’ll let you decide.
