Most of MBW’s wheat pastes have been torn down since I have taken this photo.
The ones he put on store front doors and cement traffic barriers were obviously pressure washed by the city. I have a feeling others however are now currently adorning the apartment walls of New Yorkers with good taste in art.
There is a bodega in my neighborhood of Flatbush that always has corporate sponsored murals on the side of it. I always have a certain inner dialogue and dilemma about posting the work. The concepts behind what justify art always come to the rescue though. Is it quality? Is it relevant? Is it effective? If the answer is yes then the work gets posted.
