Tagged and Bagged, Part III

In case you hadn't heard, Marc Ecko did end up getting the permit for the graffiti art performance at his block party (see earlier rant about this):

The event was the climax of a monthslong legal struggle that ended Monday, when a federal judge ordered the Bloomberg administration to reinstate a city permit to close West 22nd Street between 10th and 11th Avenues for the celebration of graffiti.

The judge ruled that the city had abridged the free-speech rights of the company holding the event, Ecko Unlimited, run by the designer Marc Ecko.

Artnet.com has more photos (like this one below).

The last image is quite beautiful, as the color becomes translucent on the window.

Thought you might like to see this from my home town. Awesome!

July saw over 100 graffiti artists from all over the UK join forces to produce over 1/2 km of pieces as part of the Brighton Hip Hop Festival and in association with Graphotism magazine.
