Reverse Graffiti

São Paulo-based reverse graffiti artist Alexandre Orion removes built up dirt and grime to create his shockingly complex imagery. Yep, these skulls are actually the cleaned walls of a tunnel in São Paulo, Brazil.
Challenging perceptions about the definition of vandalism and art, reverse graffiti really gets us stoked: both for art and the environment’s sake. Not everyone agrees, however. Peep this video below and watch how some Brazilian cops react to Orion’s “cleanliness.”
