german graffiti writers memorialize michael jackson

Graffiti writers from throughout Germany and beyond converged in Halle an der Saale, 60 miles south of Berlin, to compete in the Write4Gold graffiti battle. With the recent death of Michael Jackson, the theme of “Rest in Peace” drew spraypaint tributes, including one of the ghostly looking pop star with IZ THE WIZ, and renditions of the pop star’s troubled life. On Saturday, the final competition will be held in Leipzig, where the winning team will take home nearly 700 cans of Molotow spraypaint.(via)
