The Curious Frontier Of Red

The street artist Mobstr found a wall in East London that was partially red and decided to have a little fun with it. It turned into a battle of wits that lasted an entire year.

I cycled past this wall on the way to work for years. I noticed that graffiti painted within the red area was “buffed” with red paint. However, graffiti outside of the red area would be removed via pressure washing. This prompted the start of an experiment. Unlike other works, I was very uncertain as to what results it would yield. Here is what transpired over the course of a year. --Mobstr

You can see each stage of the graffiti “battle” individually at StreetArtNews. Contains profane language in graffiti. -via reddit

It is a good thing that the British are so civilized. In parts of the States, the building owner would have set up a security camera and Mobstr would be minus a kneecap.
