Don’t even get me started on the Natalie Shea graffiti case… but it did get me thinking.

Defacing property is not cool… even if the person deserves it.  However, that doesn’t mean that all graffiti is bad.

Case and point… Ellis G.  His work has a cult following (as it should in my opinion) for his chalk outlines throughout NYC.  I actually overheard a dude, who was unchaining his bike in the LES one night, tell his buddy that he was officially a NYer now that his bike had been shadowed by the tricky Ellis G.  And upon my eavesdropping I instantly felt jealous…

Check out BUFFdiss, a street artist, who uses masking tape to create his pieces.  All it takes is a simple yank and the art is gone.

There is also SAS, Street Advertising Services, who ‘tag’ logos on dirty surfaces, walls, roads, pavement and even road signs using a stencil and a high-powered steam machine.  This technique actually cleans your logo onto a surface… genius!

Where there’s a will creative mind, there’s a way… something we should keep in mind as we develop new media plans for clients.
