The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal

Many of you have probably seen this short documentary about graffiti removal or buffing. “The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal.” It’s one of my favorite things on the web. No matter if a graffitag, burner, art mural, street art or installation is good or bad, I like to be surrounded by it. It’s a visual language that I’m very comfortable with. Often I feel uneasy in public spaces that look like a hospital room. I hate being in a place where there’s no sign of life. The photo above was taken just a few days ago near my place, here in Barcelona. This city has not been know for buffing tags or murals but all that has changed. The trend has taken hold here too, but I have to laugh when I see graffiti removal that looks so good. It’s like they want the thing off the wall so bad that they don’t care how bad the buff is. I hope you like the film. Short and fun.

  1. This film is actually much longer, upwards of 15 minutes I think. If anyone knows where to find the full version, please let me know.
