Anulfo Baez, who is chronicling Boston's public murals, reports on the graffiti that now covers the mural on the side of Lawson's Brother's Hairstyling Salon in Egleston Square.
One of the biggest unwritten rules of graf writing is to not write over murals. This, along with writing on peoples homes and on churches are all rules these (mostly suburban or college going) writers constantly break.
Definitely not a true writer. Probably some 13 year old kid that's just getting into it and doesn't understand how it works. Weak
If college boys walked out to Egleston Square and did this, I will eat my shoe.
I love how the blogger blames the vandalism on the city for not maintaining this mural, rather than on whatever piece of garbage actually pulled out his little can and did this.
Your Lame and obviously don't know jack shit! Ever hear of Alone? He's one of the best Graff artist in the country! MMMmmmm OBey,you know they guy who designed the Obama "Hope" bumper sticker on your Subaru. AEA Crew, Spine. Take A Fuck'n Walk.......
The Obey guy is not a native. Just ask Boston Police.
He still spent 6 years putting up industrial sized posters all over the city. Also it doesn't negate the fact Alone who is now almost 45 is still one of the best.
Really guy? AEA? Aren't they North Shore anyways? Shitty straight letters over more established writers doesn't make you good.
Alone WAS good when he was active.
Boston has it's share of good writers, but AEA ain't on the list.
AEA is a mixed bag, they have some pretty tight spots.
Boston Guys, you must be S. Shore! Also most of these murals are done by graff artist.
Foil has some cool ones in Dudley.
If they were North Shore (they're not), I'd give em props for covering so much of the Southwest Corridor in someone else's city. Can't say I've seen any bad pieces them (Spin, 4Cast, Mynd) on my travels, they're far from weak. I'm not Boston graf authority, or even writer, so let I'll stop before some asshole gets all butt hurt about me speaking on something g I know so little about. That said some if you take graf way to serious, calm down and spread the art.
For starters Obey is weak as hell, also this wasn't done by Alone or anyone from AEA. I also don't think it was done by the original "built," so I recommended you calm down, study a little, and stop dropping names anonymously on blogs.
This seems like as good a place as any to post this. We're looking for muralists and street artists of all types to turn Bartlett Yard outside of Dudley into Boston's largest temporary art zone.

Murals will go up May 11 in a big festival, city permitting gods notwithstanding...
