The graffiti noted in Action Not “Art” in the September issue of WestView has sparked a backlash. There has been isolated “Deport Cuomo” and “InfoWar.com” graffiti around the West Village lately. The most recent addition is on the northwest corner of Hudson and Charles Streets. A neatly-lettered sidewalk chalk marking for the right wing InfoWars has appeared. If Deport Cuomo or InfoWars.com artists would like to express their opinions, maybe they can write something for WestView and stop hiding behind messy anonymous graffiti.
