Legible Graffiti

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Mathieu Tremblin lives and works in Rennes and Arles, France, finds graffiti and enhances them for legibility (and sometimes the taggers return).

“As if tagging the city was about freedom, and drawing decorative letters about control, I wanted to find a project to turn “ugly tags” into something “beautiful”, but preserve the subversive part of language distortion.”

I find it interesting that the vandalism in France is indistinguishable from that in the US, and I wonder why.
