Reverse-Graffiti

At first, anger seems an unlikely reaction to somebody scrubbing away dirt from filthy city walls and tunnels, but that's been the case in England as British authorities and bloggers alike have been unsure of how to react to Reverse Graffiti, a graffiti technique that emerged in 2003. The work of Paul “Moose” Curtis in Leeds, England, like writing “Wash Me” on the window of a dirty car, Paul leaves his mark on surfaces by washing away filth and revealing the contrast of the dirt to the clean surface below. Find out more about Moose by reading the NPR interview and see what Moose is up to lately by visiting Moose’s site, Symbollix.
