See, this graffiti artist Gabe DeLao stopped by the Factory .
“Listen, you have trouble with taggers,” he said. “They tag blank walls. But if you have artwork, they respect it, and leave it alone.”
Kinda made sense to us, especially when Gabe admitted that he started as one of those taggers when he was young, but has since seen the light.
So he made us a great offer we couldn’t refuse.
And presto. The container out front got a makeover.
You can check out Gabe’s work at muralogy.tumblr.com
