A Reminder of the Difference Between Public Murals and Graffiti
This is an awesome mural from How & Nosm and Dabs Myla. And it just got bombed to the side with a graffiti fill in from HOFK.
Some folks might not like the placement, and some might even call this spot jocking. But the new graffiti piece does go up on the side of the mural, not covering anything.
Beyond that, the illegal graffiti bomb, risking life, limb and imprisonment just to paint that spot, well, it serves as a reminder about the difference between public murals and graffiti. Both share public art space, but the spirit is different.
