Wolkoff’s Needs Lotsa White Paint After Starting a 5Pointz War

save 5pointzA Save5Pointz Facebook fan commented “they’re gonna need painters on stand by” after the landlord Jerry Walkoff white washed the building overnight, painting over the works of countless of street artists.

A vigil was held on Tuesday night when according to Hyperallergic, “The protesters created a wall of messages to express their grief and anger, and the most popular scrawlings were “5Pointz: Rest in Power” “Beat the Buff!,” and “Fuck the Buff.”

My personal favorites are the messages to the landlord. Clearly his actions have created a monster that uses spray paint as its form of revenge. Jerry, go stock up on white paint – you may have won the battle but you have started a war.
