We recently learned that there is a group of individuals who go out and buff works of graffiti of their own volition. They feel that its necessary to blot out graff with ugly chunks of gray and silver paint. After watching the trailer for the new film Vigilante Vigilante, one can’t help but think of them as hypocrites, as many of them have developed their own handles, such as the Grey Ghost and the Graffiti Guerilla. They become known throughout the community and seem to feed their egos off of fame they garner, just like any other writer would. Looking at their age though, hopefully nobody will follow in their footsteps and their legacies will stop with them.
The film will premier on August 12th in San Francisco.
