Mobstr’s Street Art: “Paint Me White Again”
British street artist Mobstr spray paints on blank walls throughout his home city of Newcastle are intelligent and thought-provoking—though entirely illegal. Newcastle, which is “crawling with police and cameras,” has adopted a zero-tolerance policy to street art/graffiti, but Mobstr does not let this deter him. If anything, it seems to fuel his creative streak. He states that within just a couple of weeks, the city had effectively erased his painting, but the garbage remained. Seems people are okay with garbage, but not okay with street art.
