Subversive streets!

For several years I have been amused by the innovative street artists Darius and Downey (aka Leon Reid IV and Brad Downey) who worked together between 2000-06 in New York, London, and Berlin. They subversively moved, sculpted and wrote on ordinary "street furniture" giving them a new lease of life...until it was spotted and taken down by councils!
