Guerilla Green Graffiti: Mossy Urban Art Brings Nature Home

The closest most graffiti taggers get to being green is using spray paint cans that don’t contain CFC’s, but some guerilla green graffiti artists are taking their art to a new level. Few people would complain about having their building tagged with beautiful greenery, to the point that people will gladly pay to have their buildings tagged.

Green artists are all about reminding viewers that nature is out there, and could easily be incorporated into the urban life. When sidewalks seem like the natural state of the world, it’s time to take a trip into the country, and don’t forget to bring back a little green graffiti to share the joy.
