be respectfull, ask the gallery before you paint.

YOU NEED TO ASK SPECIFIC PERMISSION FROM THE OWNER OF ANY HOUSE, FACTORY OR BUSINESS BEFORE YOY PAINT IT. THE COPS WILL NOT LET YOU OF WITHOUT PERMISSION.

First time I painted there in 2008 it seemed to be all sweet as there were some local writers doing their thing as well, however just when I´ve finished and packed my shit up cops rocked up and started to hassle the local writers there. Second time i´ve painted further down May Lane in 2009 and it seems like there is a cop living just opposite. Anyway he rocked up at the fence of his garden just opposite where I was and told me that I should leave immidiately otherwise I would get into big trouble although I had spoken to the guys who we´re running the business who´s sidewall I was painting and they had given me permission. The cop was off duty but presented his police badge and said that it´s not legal around there at all and he´s just being kind as I´m a foreigner and couldn´t know any better as the walls are completely covered with graff there...

FYI. April 2011 - A person was arrested by Newtown Police. They visit May Lane daily now. You do need specific permission from owners for any property.

Is this wall still safe to paint?
