Working with Filth

Paul "Moose" Curtis is dedicated to cleaning up our mess. He makes graffiti with a pressure washer and stencils. He draws in grime, soot and dust. The effect is pretty wonderful; a beautiful work of art while at the same time making a clear statement about our impact on the environment. If art's role is to help us see things, Moose does it on multiple levels.

LINK: The man who shot this video, David Pray, also shot the movie "Scratch." Here is the trailer for any vinyl vultures who may be passing through. Big hit at Sundance in 2001. Still great, hilarious. Netflix here.
