Graffiti Finds a Way to Take Its Fair Share of Outdoor Media Space

If the last post was about the city relinquishing control of our visual landscape to the highest bidder, then this post is an indication that the public will not take it lying down. Although these billboards along the BQE have been empty and white for quite some time, unauthorized use by graffiti artists reflects their interest in using outdoor media spaces for their own communications, permission or not.
Gaia writes on Vandalog, "My man Rambo has been blessing quite a few billboards along the BQE as of late. Enjoy the adventure virtually and keep your eyes up if you re in queens or brooklyn, whether looking for graff spots or not." Via Lunapark, Lukwam and Changsterdam
