So... he probably used a step ladder, right?

enjoy troy rat Green Island Bridge

Saw this the other day on one of the walls under the approach to the Green Island Bridge in Troy.

There used to be a little tin soup can with red paint spilling down the sides, glued to the bricks near this crafty river rat.

But it was removed almost immediately for weed whacking. I snagged a picture of this original ephemeral tableaux before the paint can removal:

I love the little "green slime" oozing out of the little tunnel where this critter must live. If you look closely, you can see he has a little green goop on his paws.

I really wish someone like Ira Marks would make an animated cartoon based on this.

Starts with the green goop dripping out of the tunnel (drip, drip, drip).

Then all of the sudden a paint can plops out of the tunnel followed by our rodent artist, who then paints "enjoy troy." And disappears back in the tunnel, leaving his paint can behind (along with some green goop footprints).

After a moment, maybe someone walks by and kicks the can by mistake because he wasn't looking.

Looks like a Banksy

Just graffiti. Go paint your apartment if you need a creative outlet.

Fake Banksy... one of his rats but not him. Can anyone make out the tag?

can you please post a larger photo so we can see the tag better? thanks!

@streetartlover, the tag reads: ZERO. If you click the link in my comment above, that goes to a public photo on facebook of this art. And you can enlarge that photo to full screen to see the tag better.

oh god,. FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRT
