“It’s a giant, blank canvas for an aspiring artist,” O’Keefe said. He said the lettering is hard to read, which makes the graffiti consistent with the Wildstyle brand that originated in New York City in the 1970s and 80s.
“Wildstyle writing features arrows, spikes, curves and other elements that non-graffiti artists may have a hard time understanding. Wildstyle pieces are often 3D and considered to be one of the most complicated forms of graffiti,” the website reads.
“It’s very happenstance,” O’Keefe said.
The latest graffiti will likely stay around.
The DOT may pay the contractor to remove the graffiti, but that’s not usually done until the end of the project.
“The Department of Transportation has limited resources to chase after all the graffiti artists, especially when prioritized against critical bridge or highway deficiencies,” Boynton said.
