L.A City Hall Honours Man One, Then Defaces His and Vyal’s Mural

August 8, 2012

This has to be one of the dumbest bureaucratic goofs I’ve heard about in a long time. L.A City Hall had honoured the graffiti artist Man One this June, however it seems their tastes don’t reach as far as the night cleaning crew. A few days ago, undercover of the night, an overzealous city worker with a power washer managed to completely destroy a massive mural by two of L.A’s finest graffiti artists, Man One and Vyal.

Even local business owners had commented how much passing trade the street art was bringing in. What’s worse, there’s a $h1tload of crappy tags just around the corner, and no one even thought of removing those. I’ve had it with dumb bureaucrats and their hankering for making every single urban sprawl look like the next. To save face, next time L.A City Hall should take a tip from Bristol, club together and lay some perspex over the murals they want to keep.
