Is it graffiti at all?

Reverse Graffiti For as long as there have been dirty vehicles, people have writing "clean me" on them, but visual artist Alexandre Orion has taken this concept to a new level with his much more creative (and time consuming!) take on 'reverse graffiti'.  It's like traditional graffiti, but with an eco twist.
