Wet Paint is a trav­el­ing art show that cap­tures the pal­pa­ble ten­sion between the MTA and graf­fi­ti writ­ers in New York City. When the author­i­ties clean up sub­way sta­tion graf­fi­ti by paint­ing over it, they rou­tine­ly hang a Wet Paint ” sign. Per­sue pulled down hun­dreds of these signs and sent them to artists around the world. Each artist made their sign unique­ly beau­ti­ful. Since its con­cep­tion as a sim­ple web­site release, it has been embraced by artists and col­lec­tors alike, as a fresh approach to a well-loved genre.
