Does anyone know if there are walls to rent in Atlanta for a couple of days so you can paint whatever you want and then they'll paint it back when you're done?
If they do and the price is reasonable I woudn't mind trying my hand at it.

I always thought a solution for illegal graffiti was to give artists a legal place to do it. Install a wall at a public park... Donate certain tunnels to the craft... Etc. Mutual respect is key. Set the ground rules (nothing vulgar, only graffiti the assigned areas, etc) and see what happens from there.

MAniacTHW that never works a wall was given to them and a tunnel but the trash seems to creep out and on to other places ...... So just chop off all fingers and see how that works .... Taggers dont have any rules they just trash the place ...... I know this to be a fact some of the main taggers just got out of prison in Reno and came to Atlanta in 2008 . They trashed my neighborhood as well as other neighborhoods .... We are talking about grown people 21-30 years old they dont care about you or me only 2 things they care for is drugs like herion and crack .... and stealing cans of spray paint....... So far up to date I busted 8 kids and 10 grown men 1 grown woman .....

I went on a trip out of town this weekend. Coming down from Cobb County into Atlanta, I saw some graffiti on the highway. What I am finding is that this isn't confined to Atlanta. In Kennesaw I saw Sur 13 taggings near my apartment complex. I have found some graffiti on an ice rink building, as well as some other buildings. I went to Doraville and saw MS 13 taggings.
