When you have a retail space in an inner city suburb, graffiti becomes a way of life. At least once a fortnight, you can see L'Homme De Montmartre repainting a spot or two on the outside of our building to get it back to its shiny black beauty. No complaints, we love this place! So, I felt so excited approaching Galmont one morning to see that another retailer has taken the problem into their own hands by commissioning a professional to enhance the side of their establishment.
This is the just the beginning! I think it will look awesome when it is completed. So we will spend the next few weeks monitoring its progress and sharing the results.
I especially love the little message (bottom left-hand corner) to tell others that this is a work in progress - I have no doubt that the locals will show it respect.
