COPENHAGEN — Shepard Fairey’s wall mural at Jagtvej 69 in the Nørrebro neighborhood of Copenhagen may scream “Peace” but graffiti artists appear to have declared war on the art work that sits on the site of Ungdomshuset, the former leftist youth center that was destroyed by the country’s right-wing government in 2007.
Even after the initial defacement and Fairey’s attempt to fix the situation, the mural continues to get vandalized regularly.
I toured the site on Sunday and there’s no signs of visual peace in the lot that attracts graffiti writers of all types. I’ve included a 180 degree view of the site so that readers can get a sense of the location of the mural.
