Buffing is when graffiti artist’s work gets scrubbed over by The Man. Stieg point us to what happens when a street artist buffs The Man back, in this case, a billboard in the Red Hook borough of Brooklyn. The only tools required were a roller, paint and an a roller extension.
Note the buffed graffiti below the altered billboard.
The work is done by a member of Visual Resistance, a Brooklyn-based group of artists who don’t like things and make art about ‘em, frequently street-based.
