Graffiti in Plaza del Obelisc, Palma.

Neighbours and business owners are absolutely furious about graffiti that was daubed on buildings in Plaza del Obelisc in Palma three weeks ago.

It’s one of many areas that graffiti vandals have targeted in Palma over recent months and local business owners say removing the ugly images costs a fortune.

"Repainting the facade to remove the graffiti will cost around 2,000 euros," says Toni Bordoy, who owns the s'Auba fruit shop, which is covered in graffiti.

The Es Capitol Residents Association has also condemned the graffiti.

Some of this graffiti must take quite a time to do, yet nobody SEES it ? Covert Cameras ?

I have suggested in the past, that strict controls on the sale of their spray paints could reduce Graffiti. If it is very difficult to obtain their paints through taxation, or age controls. Then it could reduce their actions

The young people of today scream about environmental damage and how the older generation is to blame, then they go out into the street to party, leaving mountains of rubbish, damaged property and graffiti in their wake.

Shame on them, and shame on the authorities for the perpetual inaction that allows this situation to prevail.

Graffiti is the new virus of Mallorca. It’s everywhere, it’s ugly, it’s antisocial, it’s destructive and nobody does anything about it!
