N.O. Graffiti Artist fight back the Grey ghost!
Driving to the Store,School,Party, or even home in the city of New Orleans you are always guaranteed to see someones art work also known as Graffiti. Graffiti just like music and dance has become part of our culture, and just like music and dance there is some we like and don't like, but there is no denying that graffiti is in our lives everyday.Well what happens when this graffiti is covered up with more paint but instead of colors and designs, just a Grey square! Well people that would make me pretty mad! Especially if it was my work you covered or if you covered my property with this horrible Grey square as opposed to the graffiti that defines the surrounding community. Do you think anyone would do that? I didn't until I found out about the Grey Ghost(the video will explain him). So in retaliation to this Grey ghost what have the people and the artist done? The people have protested the Grey ghost and his business "operation clean sweep" and the artist have mocked him by putting up graffiti that depicts him taking it down(shown in the pictures below).Personally I respect graffiti artist because of the risk and obstacles they face, and when their work is a symbol for the community, marking over it is spitting on that community.I along with hundreds of other people protest the work of "Operation Clean Sweep"!
