Street art today is either worshipped or badly cursed. Since Space Invaders, Banksy, Le Rat and their controversial works made the headlines (and a film), a generation of graffiti artists is on the rise. They use stencils, pencils, sculptures, posters, aerosols, chalks and/or paper-cuts to cover our dull walls and color our lives.
A UK street artist is setting himself apart. To all those who castigate graffiti and deem it an outlaw, dirty and disrespectful art, he opposes his environment-friendly method. Paul Curtis, aka “MOOSE”, creates art by cleaning the dirt from walls using a shoe brush, water and elbow grease.
It’s clean, it’s cool and it’s beautiful.
