Yes, I know it is paint on buildings at the end of the day… but studies have shown this is the best way to combat taggers from pray painting from all over the place….   The thought process goes as this.  Instead of spending money trying to ‘clean up’ the city, one possibility is to contract graffiti artists like to paint murals over tagged walls. Considering the persistence of street art despite efforts to stamp it out, it may in fact be more cost-effective to go with the flow.

 

Besides… there totally cool and can be thought provoking….

 

Over the last couple of weeks we have tried our hardest to document every single mural in the city… take a look, have fun and encourage this cool form our arty in our city for your building.

 

The city will thank you! And your building will be respected.

 

Hope you’re having a great summer and enjoy!
