Graffiti Cleaner Becomes Graffiti Subject

Bad Kitty Street Art Removed And Cleaner Replaces

A cleaner was sent to clear up some Hello Kitty work done by London graffiti artist DS. Little did the cleaner upper know he was being watched in the process. DS has commented that he doesn’t mind his work being cleared up, it’s par for the course, but the fact that it happened just 8 hours after completion annoyed him. So he snapped the cleaner and immortalized him.

A month on and the piece is still sat there on Essex Road, Islington. DS was also quoted in the Telegraph as saying

Banksy does a piece and it gets protected by the council but another piece from a just as edgy artist … gets taken down.

Fair point. Here’s some of his other works:

DS - Graffiti - Blair - Churchill DS - Graffiti - El-Presidente

DS Graffiti Angel DS Graffiti Faberge Grenade DS Graffiti Kid With Guns

DS - Graffiti - Lil Kim - Jong Il DS - Graffiti - Munny - Helicopter Baby DS - Graffiti - Walkies - Space Suit
