Rankos, aka Read More Books, Goes Under the Freeway

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 24, 2012
Somewhere in Cleveland, Ohio underneath an overpass the graffiti writer, Rankos, aka Read More Books, had a field day painting numerous different styled pieces. That would be 10 to be exact. Too bad some base head found a red can laying around and made a pathetic attempt at dissing some of them.

    Banksy put some new images up on his website and this one caught our eyes immediately.  In many ways, the truth behind this is unsettling, but also certain people deserve a little recognition and if a monetary gain accompanies it, why not?
