  • How nice to notice that worldwide security company Securitas guards nowadays a work of street art in Kotka.

    They have even inserted their sticker ("Guarded" in 3 languages!) to help passers-by understand not to destroy this graffiti.

    LOVE YOU, as the graffiti says. Right way to go, boys.

    More pessimistic person than me could think that they guard a boring concrete colossus behind that painted steel door.

    But I am in optimistic mood today! I think that they truly want to become a protector of street art instead of guarding services, patrols, inspections, access control and other Orwellian way of life.

    Ars longa, vita brevis. Quod erat demonstrandum.
