The Splasher Goes Mainstream

The paint vandal known as the Splasher continues getting attention. The front page of the Metro Section in today's New York Times notes the "bright green and purple splashes of paint that began appearing on walls in Brooklyn and Manhattan more than a month ago." It also notes the Splasher's weird manifestos pasted to the wall at the site of many splashings, saying that "it is difficult to be sure what the messages really mean." Apparently, there's plenty of speculation among watchers of street art about who the Splasher might be, but so far, no one's caught him splashing paint. And there is unlikely to be any police investigation, as street art falls into the same legal category of vandalism as the splashings themselves.
