Street Art Protection | For some time now, there’s a more or less big discussion running around the world, why street artworks should be protected, who decides which one is worth protecting. After everybody’s darling and super-duper street art hero Banksy, we now have another artist (?) whose works moved up the ladder http://www.urbanartcore.eu

and are now worth protecting…

Mr. Brainwash Gets Protection

As the Melrose & Fairfax blog for street art in Los Angeles wrote, it’s no one else than Mr. Brainwash whose street artworks are getting protected with plexiglass!

“The two stencils feature a trophy from the Oscars, and a little boy with a camera. We think it is a cool thing that more street art is being protected so that it can have a longer life be enjoyed by a wider audience. Still, there is something weird about this new treatment of street art. We can’t even put words to it. Its just a hunch, and it feels foreign.”
(Melrose & Fairfax blog)

In my opinion, protecting street art with plexiglass is one of the most stupid things you could ever do! It’s totally against the sense of ephemeral urban art! Additionally there’s also the fact, that I’m unable to grasp why someone should just protect Mr. Brainwash’s stencil stuff!? Probably someone of you could explain this to me…
