Doug Dean (pictured above) and some “concerned citizens” convened on a mural organized by Living Walls and approved by both the City of Atlanta and the owner of the wall on which the mural was painted. The mob half-assedly painted over the mural without any permit, citing their status as neighborhood residents and, in Dean’s words, taxpayers as permit enough.You can see the mural, painted by French street artist Roti, before it was defaced here: http://www.streetartnews.es/2012/09/roti-nuevo-mural-en-atlanta-usa.htmlAnd here’s the Creative Loafing article on the mural’s defacement:http://clatl.com/freshloaf/archives/2012/11/09/rotis-living-walls-mural-in-southwest-atlanta-painted-over-by-community-members-without-a-permitAnd for the punchline the community organized itself this afternoon and proceeded to remove the grey paint with scrubbers, soap, and pressure washers (courtesy of the GADOT): http://www.ajc.com/news/news/local/community-unites-to-save-mural-defaced-by-former-s/nS3Tr/Yay Atlanta for functioning in spite of the efforts of people like Doug Dean!
