Reverse Graffiti. Alexandre Orion makes it for a cause and sometimes gets caught [YouTube]. "Moose" of Symbollix makes it for fun and profit.

Early reverse grafitti.

Dirty car art.

I approve of creative vandalism like this. But, man, I don't want to drive into a tunnel, have my eyes adjust to the light, and find myself surrounded by floating skulls.

This is an inspired idea.

Much better than just scraping "Wash Me!" with a moistened finger.

How bizarre - a Leeds-based band I'm acquainted with used a photo of Moose's 'Go Gently' piece on the cover of a single they put out. Nice to know who it's by, and such a talented and enterprising chap as well, by the sound of it.

Ta for the enlightening link!

I have been enjoying the dirt grafitti for many years. The tunnel where Moose does most of his stuff is currently being messed around with. It has been dark or partially lit for a year or so.

Also, Leeds Council are idiots.

Reverse graffiti is old hat, but any link to inhabitat is a good link in my book. This is also particularly good reverse graffiti.

I think i find it most amusing that the govt where ever that is couldn't be bothered to clean the damned thing until someone showed up and essentially showed how dirty it was.
