For the past year, London street artist ‘Mobstr’ has been engaged in an epic battle with a council clean-up crew in Tower Hamlets, east London.
The graffiti artist has been involved in a hilarious back-and-forth over the wall of a substation on Dace Road.
In a post on his/her website, the unidentified street artist wrote:
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.
And the experiment has generated some pretty hilarious results. So much so, that Mobstr has compiled an animated gif of all the action on the wall over the last 12 months.
The gif has already been viewed over 4,000 times on Imgur and it’s pretty incredible. This is some serious commitment!
