Mobstr is a street artist based out of the United Kingdom who has incorporated the city’s clean up crew or “buff-men” into his art. One of his latest works “The Story” does exactly that. Mobstr picks a place to write a sentence, which is then painted over in time to preserve the local cities aesthetic. He then spray paints another part of the sentence, it gets painted over and the story continues. In this series there are 7 messages that all convey a message and display a brilliant form of street art today.

Some of Mobstr’s previous works emulate this multi mural style. The particular story he did on this construction panel turns a strained relationship between the artist and “buff-man” into one where they both contribute to the art and gives it a stronger symbiotic meaning.
