Cleaning Up SF's Streets, Eco-Graffiti Style


Eco Graffiti at the San Francisco Marathon
So most people don’t use graffiti to clean up a city street, but that’s exactly what we’ve been doing over the past few weeks. We’ve been out painting Viv’s on Market, on Haight, on Hayes, the Embarcadero, and more. If there’s pavement available… we’ll Viv it. Perhaps you’ve seen us? It looks something like this:
Ingredients = Stencil, salt water, water sprayer / pump, and a good lookin’ piece of pavement.
Directions = Find high traffic area; Lay down stencil; Mist (gently) with water; Lift; and Ta-Da! (graffiti typically lasts for ~15 minutes before evaporating).

So next time you spot us on the streets, get that urban rebel out of you and come “clean up” SF’s streets with some Viv Eco-graffiti.
