Mobstr is a street art story teller who uses graffiti as a method to impart thoughts and communicate ideas to the public sphere.

This project, called 'The Story,' starts with a simple "once upon a time," knowing full well that someone will come and cover it up. Each time one line of the story gets painted over, the next one appears on top, thus continuing the narrative until the story reaches it's end. This creates a certain harmony between two societal forces and their opposing ways of thought.

Rather than be angry about the graffiti being covered up, Mobstr made this part of the street art story project, purposefully interacting with those who work against it. Stats for Persistent Narrative Graffiti Trending: Older & Warm
