ATE – XI

The streets of New Orleans are patrolled by a vigilante called The Gray Ghost, 52 year old Fred Radtke, a man who’s been systematically obliterating every piece of graffiti across the city with the same shade of gray paint since 1997. 

For my eleventh installment of All Things English… check out how British street artist Banksy used The Grey Ghost’s canvas as a launch pad for a fresh piece in New Orleans. 

 

Doesn’t this have a “Hello, my name is Simon” from Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings feel?  Keeping in the ATE theme, these cartoons were originally made in England by Filmfair in the 70’s… and they too are rad.
