#23: Damage Control

Wow!  This girl has either a very devoted fan or she has relatives living in the neighborhood.  A few days ago i took the photo of this New Jersey based reality TV show star, with a nice piece of artwork painted on her mouth.  And then a couple of days later I came across the same poster... and the piece was gone!!!  Someone actually took the time to carefully remove the offending material without damaging the poster!

I have to say that the clean up work was even more skillfully done than the original drawing.  One could say it's a sample of "restorative art" if there is such a thing.   (And actually, there is.  But if you google that term, you find things related to 'fixing up' dead people for their funeral.  Weird.)

I always thought that subway ads were there for the soul purpose of graffiti. Nice to see that someone is documenting the brilliance.
