Reverse Graffiti par Alexandre Orion

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 project "Art Less Pollution", the artist composes a tag in negative, by subtraction and not by adding material. His face mask is not here to protect him from paint fumes but rather exhaust.

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