A graffiti artist tagged the same London wall over one year in a bizarre and hilarious battle with authorities. He started last summer on July 17th, 2014 and finished nearly a year later. The street artist that goes by Mobstr, has undertaken similar progressive projects before and he explains how this cat-and-mouse game began:
“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. Below is what transpired over the course of a year.”
