When the notion of public intervention was introduced for project 4, I instantly thought of the reverse graffiti artist Paul Curtis aka “Moose”.  Utilizing stencils, power washing tools, water and the filth on walls created by pollution, Moose creates temporary murals on dirty city walls and tunnel walls that are gradually degraded by a re-accumulation of filth.  This way of creating art makes a strong statement about the human impact on the environment.

 

Here is a link to a clip from a documentary about Moose
