Nike advertisement, railway bridge, Newtown

Two weeks ago I took a photo of the Nike ads on this wall next to the railway line in Newtown, when they had been completely painted over with white paint. Now, the ads have been restored to their original pristine condition, but grafitti artists continue to use them for their tags. In Newtown, it seems, it remains a battle of wills between the owners of the spaces where ads appear and the companies advertising their products, on the one hand, and the grafitti artists on the other.
