Armed with only a cloth, the Brazilian graffiti artist Alexandre Orion Tagge by cleaning the walls blackened by pollution from a road tunnel in Sao Paulo.

As part of his "Art Less Pollution" project, the artist thus composes a negative tag, by subtraction and not by addition of material. His face mask is not here intended to protect him from paint fumes but rather from exhaust gases.

Sometimes considered a nuisance, graffiti then appears as a positive act, aiming to appropriate the city by revalorizing it and not by degrading it, also inviting us to reflect on the harmful effects of urban pollution.
