Maryhill Anti-Graffiti Network

Maryhill Anti-Grafitti Network

Does anyone know who’s behind the Maryhill Anti-Graffiti Network?

Update: Veryape (aka General Ape) has some information on their inspiration:

It’s a play on posters put up during the 80’s by the philadelphia anti-graffiti network (formed by the then mayor to eradicate graffing) which read the same. pic of the original here. notice original’s spelling =) go pick up a copy of henry chalfant’s “spraycan art” book for more.

Greffetti Writers Are Mean

Thanks Ape!

Update II: I know who is behind the stencil now, but will respect the anonymity of the artist!

  1. dunno which artist is behind it but it’s a play on posters produced by the Philadelphia Anti-Graffiti Network during the 1980’s. have taken a pic of the original for your reference and have a look out for henry chalfont’s “spraycan art” book for more of the same.
