5pointz buffed white and set for demolition

Graffiti // Sunday, November 24, 2013
After a long struggle that lasted years between developers and the graffiti community on the future of the iconic graffiti location known as 5Pointz, the battle ended last week. And not in the favor of writers.  In the early morning the enormous building had been white washed even though demolition was not immediate and the owners reasoning was “To watch the pieces go down piece by piece by piece would be torturous.” So that’s that. An end of an era. If anything, hopefully there will be a backlash of illegal work hitting the streets, which is what’s happened in the past when legal spots are destroyed and graffiti writers are pushed out of their comfort zone.
