I've heard of an artist that goes by the name of "Troll." Google him. Might be what you're looking for--might not.

Graffiti and artist should not be used in the same sentence. This was posted around seven and people haven't lit this post up yet??? SAPD gang unit might know some good artists. Sure they'd be more than happy to converse with you.

Just a quick snipit from Wikipedia on Graffiti art and high art at that:

Graffiti - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I agree that graffiti can be a mess, but it can be beautiful as well, if done correctly.

I generally associate art as being something in a museum or gallery. Not spray painted on an old brick wall. I am sure the city and local business owners would agree with me. Perhaps we should do like Singapore and throw offenders in jail for 4 months, a fine of $3500, and public canings.

The OP was clearly trying to stir up a reaction. (Also posted about looking for ways to move minorities into housing developments in certain parts of SA.) I assume that they were trying to draw out the "liberals" and make some weird point. Didn't work. They should be a bit subtler.

I would hope that this old brick wall is owned by the OP. So he can, at least in eyes, do whatever he pleases with the wall.

I believe u can find graffiti artists in Westover Hills, NorthWest Communities, and along 410. The real good ones, at least. Emerging markets are Stone Oak and Alamo Ranch.
