Google Jeffrey Epstein

A concerned citizen filed a 311 complaint about the graffiti on the Quincy School in Chinatown that's been there for a week. To save that person and you the trouble, Epstein is the jet-setting billionaire pal of both the current president and Bill Clinton who also happens to be a convicted sex offender with a taste for underage girls, who reached a nice plea deal with the then US Attorney who is now secretary of labor.

Vivant Vintage mural before defacement

Mural before it was defaced.

Just three months ago, artist Hiero Vega finished this mural on the side of his brother's Vivant Vintage clothing store on Lincoln Street in Allston. Sometime this week, somebody who has yet to master the art of writing, let alone a sense of shame, defaced it. People who admire the work are raising funds to pay for Vega's travel up from Florida and the cost of the new paint so he can repair the damage.

Pro-Trump graffiti in Roslindale

A concerned citizen filed a 311 complaint today asking the city to remove the "ridiculous graffiti" at the Fallon Field playground in Roslindale today.

It must be tough being the only Trumpie on your block, so you feel like you have to act out somehow, because this is not the first time stuff like this has showed up at Fallon Field.

Graffiti at Thompson Center

Larry Johnson spent some time recently at the Thompson Center, which some residents want to turn into a multi-use dog park, but which state Rep. Angelo Scaccia is fighting to keep it just the way it is.

Artists have complete freedom of expression here in billboard size pieces and are not fettered by the limitations put upon them by "community standards" or neighborhood associations who govern what can be put on public walls, or commercial concerns, or "acceptable" material teenagers can create on a mural project under adult supervision. This outdoor gallery is a unique museum of these creations, ever changing and challenging convention.

For the second time in six months, vandals have defaced a mural at the corner of Archdale and Washington Street that depicts a Dominican saying. Unlike in June, today's defacement appears to be the work of two different taggers.

After the first incident, members of the Mayor's Mural Crew repainted the mural about two weeks later. The mural crew, however, consists of high-school students who only work in the summer.
