You will comforted to learn the University of Melbourne has an expert on street graffiti and that he is available for quotes and analysis on matters of inner-urban concern.

Their website advises:

Dr Lachlan MacDowall is an artist and cultural researcher in the Centre for Cultural Partnerships in the Faculty of the VCA and MCM, University of Melbourne. His areas of research include the history and aesthetics of graffiti, the creative city and community-based art-making. He has published widely on graffiti, street art and urban creativity, including as a contributor to the two book-length studies of Australian graffiti…

Their “Find an expert” site makes it clear the good Doctor is knowledgable in many other exciting areas:

Graffiti and street art (urban creativity, public art)
Community-based arts (community cultural development, community arts)
Arts evaluation (arts and cultural research and evaluation)
Theories of sexuality (bisexuality)
The Jackal in popular culture (Carlos the Jackal)
