A HDB block at Jalan Besar was reported in the news today as having a staircase paved with gold foil as part of a creative art work done by a resident of the block. However, the Town Council have come out and said that the creative art is actually unauthorised.
The case is currently under investigation by the Town Council, although the gold foil has not been removed yet. So, in this case, is this vandalism? Or art? And who will win? The Town Council with their by-laws, or creativity that residents agreed looks good on the staircase?
