The Art of Graffiti Removal

graffitiremoval.jpg

Graffiti goes up, then someone comes and paints over it to remove it, or do they? The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal makes a semi-satirical argument that graffiti removal is the next step in the progression of modern art. This award winning film is an interesting take on what might be the most overlooked art of our time. Now that Old Man Winter has shown his face, it is the perfect time for you to pick this flick up, bundle up on the couch with some hot cocoa and enjoy!
