[Posted 6/2/2014] Reverse Graffiti: Street Artists Tag Walls by Scrubbing Them Clean When is cleaning the sidewalks a crime? When you’re doing it to create art. Obviously. A number of street artists around the world have taken to expressing themselves through an innovative practice known as Reverse Graffiti.
