Sometimes I just have to speak my mind
That is (was) an incredibly beautiful piece. Even nicer for two reasons: 1) because you can see it was painted over a square of graffiti removal paint; and 2) because the use of red over the black evokes a defaced piece of art (looks like someone tagged the tagger). I have a new fascination for "the subconscious art" of graffiti removal posed by video artist Mike McCormick and have been writing about it lately in my blog: http://nonprofiteye.blogspot.com/2006/07/graffiti-problem-is-very-serious-one.htmlp.s. I just moved to Lincoln Heights and am also struggling with the tension between art and vandalism in my neighborhood.
