There is also a graffiti tag that seems to be commenting on the wolves circling around the figure in Gaia’s piece.
What I find particularly odd is the choice of color for the defacement. It’s not a common spray paint color but one used by the Splasher before (evidence on Gothamist), which makes me think it was deliberate and planned rather than someone doing it to be a prick, out of a fit of jealousy or just stupidity.
My other question is…has the Splasher moved to Chelsea rather than his/her/their usual stomping grounds, i.e. Williamsburg?
Here’s the original posted on Wooster Collective five days ago:
Just in case anyone was wondering, I didn’t find any manifestos nearby…so who is this Taliban Splasher? Still a mystery….
Though part of me wonders if the Splasher’s reemergence is a good thing for the Street Art scene…everyone needs critics to keep them on their toes and make things interesting donchya tink?
