Some Graf Bombed Truck, SoHo


Okay, there’s the good graff. Then there’s the really good graff. And then there’s the amazing graff. Well, his truck in the Soho cast-iron lofts district of Manhattan has been covered with graff that falls into the third and last category. This is where graff gets transcendant; where it truly becomes art at street level. But wouldn’t it be cool to just place this truck in a massive converted loft space, one that’s been turned into an art gallery with white walls? We could easily see this truck in a Chelsea gallery. Come to think of it, we could see it in the Tate Modern or MoMA. For now, the streets are the museum and the residents looking out from their luxury apartments have permanent views of the exhibition.
