Dozens of volunteers whitewashed 120 unregistered public advertisements yesterday as a part of the New York Street Advertising Takeover. The guerrilla movement was organized by Jordan Seiler and the Eastern District Gallery to combat the giant profits reaped by companies who display public advertising that has not been paid for.

Naturally, street artists rejoiced in their newly-discovered blank canvases. The graffiti in the gallery above represents some of the early pieces found by Wooster Collective after the New York Street Advertising Takeover.
