This Modern Building Art Proves Things Look Better with Graffiti

There's nothing like some good modern building art. Graffiti often gets a bad rap for being the pastime of hooligans, but it can also be some of the most honest pieces of self-expression.

New York artist Hanksy (no, not Banksy) hosted a full street art exhibit in a three story building in Manhattan's East Village. The exhibit was titled 'surplus candy' and featured some of the grittiest pieces of art standing side by side with delicate and beautiful pieces of modern art.

The house was a complete maze of color and messages. There were ironic re-appropriations, original works and tons of culture jamming going around. Essentially, this was a tagger's dream and an amazing destination for modern building art lovers.
