GRAFFITI ARTISTS at the World Trade Center

The developer gave space to some of New York’s top graffiti artists……..to spray their paint on the corrugated walls of storage sheds.  Each were given $1000 for their paint and $2,000 for their time.  15 foot ladders were used………and no one fell to their death.  A MIRACLE!

The ARTISTS: Brolga…….Stickeymonger………Todd Gray……….BoogieRez………..Chinon Maria……….Sebastian Mitre and Hektad.

5 POINTZ MURALS are Destroyed

The MURALS have been destroyed.  Jerry Wolcoff….the new owner of the building……..moved in his painters under cover of darkness……….and painted over the murals…….which are now gone forever.

Jerry said that since the building now belongs to him….he could do whatever he wanted with the murals……..so destroyed these works of art……which were known as the worlds largest open-air aerosol open museum.

But the artists took the owner to court.  A Federal Court judge Frederic Block ruled that the 21 graffiti artists had to rewarded……$150,000 for each of the 45 destroyed works of art.  HOORAY !

These fantastic GRAFFITI MURALS cover the entire warehouse……with the owners permission.  New Yorkers are trying to get the art “landmarked” so they cannot be destroyed.
