The Hork

the subconscious art of graffiti removal

Funding for anti-graffiti campaigns sometimes outweighs funding for the arts, as graffiti removal has secured its place in the history of modern art while being created by artists who are unconscious of their artistic achievements. (40th Anniversary Shorts Program)
