Environmentally Friendly Graffiti

The other day while blog-hoppin' I came across an interesting concept: reverse graffiti. After researching more about it, I discovered it's not that new of an art form, as the artist who originated it, Paul "Moose" Curtis, was featured on NPR back in 2004. More recently, however, he's been getting madd exposure with this documentary:



Once I heard that his latest mural was
in my city (and in my old 'hood), I grabbed my camera and made my way out to the Broadway tunnel to check it out for myself. I wish I had known about this earlier-- I would have loved to drive by while he was working on it or photograph it when it was still fresh. Nonetheless, I was still able to get a few good shots.





Crazy what one could do with a grimy wall, cleaning products and giant homemade stencils. I'm interested in seeing how city officials will cover up, or clean up, this kind of graffiti.

Take care of your city, folks. Keep it clean and go green... see how amazing it could be?
