Reverse Graffitti

Selective cleaning!
Here is a tribute to 35 great works of reverse graffitti. These are some people who have taken the basic idea behind scratching "wash me please" on somebody's car trunk and run with it way beyond the logical conclusion.

I had never heard of "reverse graffitti," the act of decorating a public space not by adding, but by removing filth. I'm not sure how the powers that be react to these artists. On the one hand, it is sort of a public service...they are cleaning the walls, after all. Kind of. On the other hand, it points out how dirty your environment is, which is a little embarrassing.

Do you thank these people, or arrest them?

Oh what the heck. Why not do both?
