The Midas Project

This is a really great Graffiti project run by Melo Vandal somewhere in Spain. This for me is the true power of Graffiti. Tagging someones front door is not just pointless, but it’s actually offensive to most people and only serves to alienate people not just from what graf could possibly achieve, but from graf in general. Through the “subtle interventions of a Golden Charcter” THIS project engages the public not just with graffiti, but with their environments more generally – looking at the mundane apparatus and objects of everyday life in a new (golden) light. Fantastic.
