who is the carp?

On my travels through the Northern Territory and South Australia, I kept noticing ThE CARP’s stickers…

Oodnadatta Track – Painted Desert Road

A Skylark rocket at William Creek

This yellow one is at Curdimurka

Not just stickers. Look what I found near an old railway bridge…

Do you know who ThE CARP is?

From a little searching of the internets, I only know that s/he is widely travelled, and that stickers have been appearing since 2009 (or possibly earlier).

    His name is Simon Rathbone and he is a nuisance as he even puts them on heritage listed sites. I try to remove them whenever I see them. He works in South Australia at Clare Valley now.
