These Artists Are Cleaning Up The Streets, But You Won’t Believe How.

Are you ready for a new kind of street are that’s both artsy and beautifies your city? Enter “reverse graffiti.” It sounds kind of strange, right? How does one exactly reverse graffiti? Wait until you see it.

Instead of creating art by adding paint to a wall, artists scrub off the dirt caked onto walls, sidewalks, and streets. With a lot of elbow grease (or possibly power washers), artists are taking street cleaning to a whole new level.

The resulting negative space is turned into an amazing, temporary work of art. Not to mention it’s a legal gray area for the artists. I mean you can’t get arrested for cleaning walls right? Artists use an array of different methods to clean the dirt off their canvasses including bleach, power washers, metal brushes, and sandpaper. 

1.) Art with a message. Literally.

2.) The flames make the car go faster.

3.) It can see you.
