Tagging: Biggest Tag on Earth

Unfortunately I’ve never been to New York City, yet. And for that reason, I had no chance to follow that thin trail of paint which goes through whole Lower Manhattan. That’s really pity, ’cause that line is probably the biggest tag on earth! As Nick and George from Brooklyn investigated, the paint trail – when you follow it around – forms a big MOMO tag…

After requesting a meetup, MOMO told my friend that he accomplished this task by fixing 5 gallon paint buckets to the back of his bike, poking a hole in the bottom of the containers, and riding though the West Village, Soho, Greenwich Village, East Village, and Alphabet City. Momo made the tag in 2006. Some parts of the line have been covered up by roadwork and redone sidewalks but most of the line is still visible.

It’s a fuckin’ great idea and although the tag is on the one hand a realization of graffiti main concepts, it’s on the other hand something totally different, because it’s not visible to the naked eye. What do you think about it? Do you know a bigger tag?

By the way, some weeks ago street artist Space Invader created something similar in San Diego, the Space Invader City Walk
