This remake (of a design I did for the 2k10 Challenge) is based on a 2001 Mockumentary short by the same name. The film makes a humorously argument that municipal efforts to remove graffiti has actually produced “a movement in modern art stemming from the repressed artistic desires of city workers.”

I started reworking this design after watching the Banksy documentary Exit through the Gift Shop (2010); then last week I found out there’s 2011 documentary about citizens who ‘illegally’ removal graffiti called VIGILANTE VIGILANTE: the Battle for Expression. Weird coincidence or new movement? Regardless of how you feel about graffiti this tee should spark a conversation that either begins or ends with someone saying “cool shirt!”

Love the dichotomy here, the various lame words tossed at graffitti. Great statement, thoughtful stuff, and looks awesome on the tee.
