When I think “graffiti,” I think clandestine night excursions to highway overpasses and rooftop water tanks, tagging architecture with borderline-unintelligible street handles. Of course, there’s the other side of the coin—5 Pointz in Queens, for example, which is about as close to literal as the phrase “art house” comes (still can’t believe they’re demolishing it in 2013).
And then there’s Anna Garforth’s work.
Her environmentally friendly moss wall art has drawn praise as it pops up across the globe. Now all she needs to do is figure out how to streamline the process by inventing living moss in a spray can. —MN
