The city of Nanaimo has a very close relationship with the art world. With a new mural or exhibition popping up every week, it is difficult to spot new paint – unless the unwanted paint job is on your property, of course.
Every day, homes and businesses throughout Nanaimo and the surrounding area are splashed with new tags and designs but that doesn’t mean that you have to be stuck with them. Instead of tolerating spray paint, really love your space with help from professional Nanaimo graffiti removal services. Our Gorillas are prowling nearby communities, ready and able to strip away spray paint safely and effectively.
Understanding Street Artists
Living in Nanaimo means living in an opened air art project. Sure, there are several local art galleries but residents can also enjoy the Chase River Parkway. This tunnel might have been constructed to let river water pass underneath a parkway but this space has become a safe haven for street artists. “Legal Walls” are all well and good but when art projects bleed from these areas into private properties, things become problematic.
Graffiti artists are competitive by nature. This means that one signature, or “tag”, can invite another, and another after that. While every artist wants to leave their mark, some patterns or designs can be offensive and even alienate potential visitors or customers. This is what makes quick removal so important but before you take a stab at amateur removal – it is important to know exactly what you are dealing with.
