Patrick Hedlund has a follow-up piece today at DNAinfo. He speaks with an anonymous RCN spokesperson who sounds a little huffy about Chico's mural, which graced the wall for two years.
"The bottom line is the building had illegal graffiti on it and we cleaned it up — period."
But the RCN spokesman quickly dismissed the idea that Garcia might return to work on the wall.
"We're not interested in doing business with him again," he said.
Curious to see how long the building sits tag free.... this little doodle was quickly painted over....
Anyway, there were all sorts of Chico murals on this corner...
Are you telling me that RCN just figured out that there are murals here? (What about the illegal ads?) And it wasn't as if Chico just ran up here and tagged the wall in the middle of the night... this corner art took a long time to create... And this entire time RCN was unaware of the activity?
A side note, perhaps ... graffiti artist Jairo Pastoressa, accused of murdering Christopher Jusko, helped Chico create this mural ... His signature was in spray paint below Chico's name.
