Subconcious Art Of Grafitti Removal - Matt McCormick,
Graffiti removal: the act of removing tags and graffiti by painting over
them. Subconscious art: a product of artistic merit that was created without
conscious artistic intentions. It is not coincidence that funding for
"anti-graffiti" campaigns often outweighs funding for the arts.
Graffiti removal has subverted the common obstacles blocking creative
expression and become one of the more intriguing and important art movements

of abstract expressionism, minimalism and Russian constructivism, graffiti
removal has secured its place in the history of modern art while being
created by artists who are unconscious of their artistic achievements.
