Banksy: Not All Art Is Framed

15 Mar

March 15, 2018

I spotted this on a wall of an abandoned gas station in Midwood, Brooklyn a few days ago. I was lucky enough to be there before anyone messed it up with tags and other graffiti. The slash is merely a shadow.


I’m sure there’s a statement behind the artwork but I’m simply impressed. 

UPDATE: According to the NY Post, this is by famed artist Banksy! And I was one of the first to see it. Check out their picture, which is, as I predicted, marred by tags and random spray. https://nypost.com/2018/03/17/more-banksy-art-spotted-in-nyc/ 

Once again, I scooped the mainstream media!

Brooklyn Graffiti Update: Never Wipe Returns!

16 Jul

July 15, 2016

Beginning in 2010, I documented strange graffiti that was written across Brooklyn. Someone was spray painting “NEVER WIPE” or sometimes “I NEVER WIPE” on poles, walls, and construction sites. Even after it was covered over, it came back in 2015 as “NEVER WIPE 5.0.

You can read the original 2010 post and the 2015 update for larger pictures and some background.

I was driving past the site of the 5.0 graffiti last week. I had been covered over again by more graffiti for some time but the city replaced the old concrete barricades with brand new, clean barricades. But they didn’t stay clean for long.

I don’t know who’s behind it, but Never Wipe was the first one to inaugurate the wall. I think it’s interesting that it’s still 5.0 and not 6 or 7.0 by this time. It’s hard to tell though, but if you zoom in there may be a subscript 1. This may be NEVER WIPE 5.01.

I haven’t seen it anywhere else, and I’ve been looking. If I find it anywhere else, I’ll post it here. If you see it anywhere, send in a picture and I’ll send you an official Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride pen. I only have a few left!
