It was naive for Home Affairs Secretary Patrick Ho Chi-ping to claim success because only six tonnes of rubbish was collected following the New Year celebrations on the Kowloon waterfront (South China Morning Post, January 2).

News reports confirmed that graffiti had been found in areas near the Cultural Centre.

Vandals have defaced a wall of North Kowloon Magistrates Court with graffiti in support of anti-subversion laws.

Chinese characters sprayed on in red paint read: 'In support of legislation on Basic Law Article 23 and put the Democratic Party on trial.'

At the end, the message claimed it was from the 'Hong Kong and Macau youth communists'.

Stop the litterbugs

Massive cleanup operations at Hong Kong's most popular parks and scenic spots after major festivals have become routine. And that's a shame.

Making a splash

LAST WEEK 30-something Jonone spent two nights holed up in a designer clothes shop in Causeway Bay. Once the last customer left, he locked up, shoved a couple of racks of clothes out of the way and covered the floor with sheets of plastic. Then he got down to doing what he does best: graffiti.

Nothing can stop those purists from debating whether graffiti painter Tsang Tsou-choi is an artist or a madman. Not that the eccentric octogenarian cares less - his accidental guru status was unshakeable yesterday.

Graffiti will be removed

I refer to the letter from Vivienne Brown about graffiti on a slope at Tai Tam Road (South China Morning Post, July 13).

The graffiti is located at the upper part of a shotcreted slope. The Water Supplies Department has arranged for it to be removed by the middle of this month.

An eccentric octogenarian graffiti artist dubbed the 'King of Kowloon' is to display his skills overseas to help promote a Japanese pop culture exhibition.

Tsang Tsou-choi, 81, whose works have inspired debate over the definition of art, has been invited to join two Japanese graffiti artists to promote the Japan @ Cool Expo 2002.

Unsightly numbering a form of vandalism

Mui Shue Hang playground near Tai Wo is a well-kept, almost pristine, park that has approximately 1,461 trees.

I know this number as, about two years ago, each tree had a large white number painted upon it that was clearly visible to all.

Making waves

LET'S GET IT straight. 'Experimental theatre' - like indie pop and film-making - may sound cool and hip but can, sometimes, be just a poor excuse for a very bad show.

But with WAVE, an annual experimental theatre festival organised by the Hong Kong Arts Centre, you get exactly what it promises: productions that are challenging, exciting and surprising.
