Mud graffiti is fun, eco-friendly

I’m not normally a huge fan of graffiti, but I like Jesse Grave’s this technique of using mud stencils to make temporary graffiti. It seems like a nice, low impact alternative to moss graffiti, plus you get to play with mud! He seems to be getting good results, however I wonder how well it holds up as it dries out. Anyone else try something like this? [via inhabitat]

    I’ve seen something similar to this done with chalk powder. They used a stencil, a roller and dry ground up chalk.

      I saw something similar on the sidewalk in London earlier today; in this case they cleaned the stone rather than laying down mud. I’ll try get a photo.

        Yeah, cleaning graffiti seems to be happening a lot around New York these days. I’ve seen ads for movies stenciled into the sidewalk with bleach. The thing with cleaning is that it’s harder for people to be mad about it. With chalk or mud, there’s still something that has to be washed away.

        Also, there’s this guy:

    This looks like something fun to try. Maybe I will find other local artists and paint the town a muddy brown.

    Jesse’s a friend of mine and sometimes I help him put up his stencils. The mud stays really well even after it dries. There’s even one we put up almost 3 years ago (out of the rain) which still looks really great.

      Hey cool, thanks for the insight! Three years is a pretty long time for some mud to stick around!
