Trump Tagger Hits Quarter
Political pundits have questioned whether G.O.P. frontrunner Donald Trump has an adequate ground game for the general election, but it looks like someone took a rebuttal too literally— and, too far. Residents of the Lower Quarter awoke on Thursday (3.31) to find graffiti using the candidate’s cause on cars and a home.
St. Roch Target (Video)
The St. Roch Market (2381 Saint Claude Avenue) has elicited a host of opinions and reaction since reopening. Some residents love it and others have labeled the establishment a “yuppie food court.” And, then there are the six people captured on camera trashing the new joint.
Second Lines: Police Link Quarter Graffiti to Carnival March
Mardi Gras walking parades are a fixture of Carnival season. Graffiti is not a fixture in the French Quarter. In fact, a conviction for tagging a historic building carries jail time in Louisiana. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) now says that one “impromptu march” on Bacchus Sunday involved graffiti on a pair of well known Quarter buildings.
Curtain Closes on Exhibit BE
Goodbye to the Largest Temporary Art Gallery of the South
The final hours of Prospect.3 wound down with the grand closing of Exhibit BE (1.19.) On Martin Luther King Day, visitors packed into the once abandoned, now repurposed five-story De Gaulle Manor Apartment Complex in Algiers to celebrate the temporary exhibit intended to be open to the public for a single day (11.15). That day stretched out for over two-months.

Slamming the Door on New Orleans' Black Power Graf (PHOTOS)
One of the largest installations of black political art sits in the Bywater, but HANO's job is to keep you from seeing it. Before it's demolished, Skylar Fein spends some time at the Florida Housing Projects and Project Be.
Skateboarders Tag Broad St. Building (VIDEO)
Three men on skateboards were involved in a spray-painting incident in the 1400 block of N. Broad Street, according to NOPD. The incident occurred Sunday, August 18 around 10:15p.m., when the tagging trio marked a number of local businesses with the words “Tag” and “Meech.”
French Quarter Crime Bits: Purse Snatching, Stabbing and Graffiti
Along with festin', crowds also brought crime to the French Quarter over the weekend. A trio escaped St. Peter St. with a woman's purse on Saturday morning, but they couldn't escape surveillance video later. On Sunday, a man was arrested for bringing a boxcutter to a barfight, while a cop cornered another in the act of graffiti on Bourbon. Click through for details:
The Grey Ghost Surfaces on YouTube
Fred Radtke, better known as the The Grey Ghost, may have fallen out of the news cycle, but the man and his mission to eradicate New Orleans of graffiti still lurk in New Orleans. Today, he appears in a YouTube clip filmed by Yacht Bounce and Gypsohphonic Disko purveyor DJ Quickie Mart. In the video, Quickie Mart approaches Radtke, and asks him if he is taking down a "Missing" poster for Lafayette woman Mickey Shunick. Radtke doesn't respond to any of Quickie Mart's questions over the 38-second video. Radtke is wearing an "Operation Clean Sweep" shirt, representing his nonprofit Operation Clean Sweep.

LA Guns Manager Who Knocked Out NOLA Graffiti Artists Shows No Remorse
There's no second thoughts in the L.A. Guns camp. In their recent NoDef interview with Skylar Fein, local graffiti artists The Bourghog Guild talked about a recent alteraction outside the Marigny club Siberia with the manager of hair metal band L.A. Guns after writing R.I.P L.A. Guns on the door of their tour trailer. "Next to some stickers," the Bourghog Guild told Fein. "It was clean, yeah. I understood why I got knocked out. I deserved it." Apparently Markham agrees. After seeing the article on a Facebook post by the band's singer Tracii Guns, the manager wrote, "Now you know why the second one got bitch slapped before i knocked him out."
R.I.P. and Run
Skylar Fein Talks to Street Artists The Bourghog Guild About Tagging Banksy, Getting Punched Out By L.A. Guns and the USA
Marigny-Bywater residents mystified by the recent wave of R.I.P.-themed graffiti may find solace (or rage) in the following: the drippy messages that say things like "R.I.P. Cy Twombly," "R.I.P. Banksy" (on top of an actual Banksy), and "R.I.P. Swoon" (on top of a Swoon), messages that have declared the death of writers, politicians and food items, are the work of two young men, and perhaps more, who live in the 9th Ward and work under the name Bourghog Guild.
