Reverse Graffiti

leave a comment »

This is a really interesting technique of Streetart – it basically involves removing dirt in certain areas of a wall in order to create a picture. This begs the question “can cleaning off dirt really be seen as vandalism?” In my opinion, the creation of art in this way is a great way of raising awareness of the state of an area, and in most cases I would imagine the wall will be cleaned as a result.
