The ethical issues have always prevented me from enjoying grafiti—I can’t endorse someone directly violating another person’s property rights—but this seems like an interesting attempt to overcome them.
In a related idea, I’d love a public “graffiti-approved registry” that would allow building owners to give permission for artists to work on their buildings. That wouldn’t end all illegal street art/graffiti of course, because some of it is done in the spirit or rebellion, but I think it’d be a good step.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
