Graffiti

Harper and his girlfriend Danielle Bremner came to Australia from the U.A.E. on April 21, 2016.

The pair are a member of the international graffiti organization, Made U Look.

Harper uses the tag Ether and Bremner uses Utah, so their work is signed "UTAHETHER".

[5]

Harper and his partner were attempting to cover Melbourne in graffiti and are nicknamed "Graffiti Bonny and Clyde".

The pair vandalized a train in addition to other locales of Melbourne.

[2]

Sentencing

After placing stickers in some shops and getting caught the pair ran off and were pursued.

Harper destroyed the man's camera as he tried to take a picture of them.

[2]

Harper was defended by Adrian Lewin who asserted this was not vandalism but a hobby.

The Magistrate ruled against this statement and assigned Harper 6 months in jail plus the requirement to repay $1595.80 in damages to the train company and $280 to the man whose property they destroyed.

[5]

Bremner escaped Australia to Hong Kong.
