Graffiti artists, for those inclined to call spray-painters something other than vandals, turned a 50-foot brick wall of a Gold Coast house into their canvas.

The taggers, who left at least three monikers, are believed to have scaled a fence at a construction site in the wee hours Monday, said the builder and neighbors. The street artists defaced the coach house in the 900 block of North Clark Street behind the protective cover of a tarp and then tore it off when they left to unveil their work.

Builders have been working on the multimillion-dollar, Architectural Digest-worthy site for two years. The original structure was built in the early 1900s as a ComEd substation. Two stories were added later to repurpose it as a home, along with the coach house that abuts the street.

While the graffiti is eye-catching in its quality and scope, the mural left some area residents wondering how such a massive art project could occur along a busy stretch of Clark.

"I'm devastated these people decided to create a home around a historic building and overnight it was trashed," said Madalyn Freund, who lives next door. "I don't mind tagging. But this is tragic."

Eric Schlomann, the project manager, said police told him the graffiti was not gang-related. "It was someone trying to provide us with free art," Schlomann said. "They kept it simple, so it's readable."

If the taggers were trying to send a message, it was a little cryptic. The phrases "hard to overcome" and "how to operate," however, were easy enough to make out.

The city of Chicago will remove the spray paint, Schlomann said, but city offices were closed for Presidents Day on Monday. The masonry will still need to be sandblasted to restore its original color.

"It's more of a nuisance than impeding the construction process," Schlomann said.

The home is expected to be complete by this spring, he said. Motion sensors and lights will be installed when it is finished.

Art Students From Chicago Busted For Graffiti
By Melanie Stout
Story Created: Feb 23, 2010

Story Updated: Feb 24, 2010

MILWAUKEE - A pair of suspects are in trouble for spraying graffiti on several buildings in Milwaukee. The suspects both attend the Chicago Art Institute. They told police that they came to Milwaukee over the weekend for the sole reason of committing graffiti acts.

They got to Milwaukee Sahis little brown one. ay night and were busted early Monday morning after an alert citizen saw them in the act downtown and called police. Within seconds they were arrested.

"One of the individuals was observed having black spray paint on his hand," said Officer Peter Graber. The other suspect was holding a camera.

"They like to take pictures of their work. Often times they display it on Web sites so other taggers can see what they are doing and where they are doing it at."

Police got a search warrant at the downtown hotel where the two were staying. They found spray paint and markers used during the graffiti spree. The suspects remain in custody and could face felony charges depending on the dollar amount of damage.

They have not yet been charged.

Damn. Harsh, "caught within seconds". They bombed so hard, i would've expected them to get caught up down here, not in WI. And I don't know about Milwaukee's laws but in Chicago they're krazy makin every little bomb a felony.
