If walls could talk

image

Last year, I posted about a series of cryptic messages printed on posters and pasted up on walls around the borough. I’m here to report that the artist(s) is (or are) still at it.

Here’s an updated gallery with some recently-spotted* additions. To me, the messages seem to have taken a darker turn. Is that an artifact of a small, skewed sample, do you suppose, or a reflection of darker times?

*Well, fairly recently, anyhow. I started collecting examples last winter; some of these depicted here are looking considerably more tattered now than when I photographed them.
