This is not cool. A nice piece in Bristol by some guys called Cheo and 3Dom got buffed by the council. Happens all the time right? Well this particular piece had been painted with permission, and the council knew that.
At leasts the artists got back at the council in their own special way. Check out these photos of before the buff, after the buffing, and after the artists found out about it (click on the images for a larger size)
(that sign reads “Council Vandalism: Mural removed illegally by the Bristol City Council”)
Hopefully, the council will learn from this and be more careful in the future, but I doubt it.
