Tending to the doctor

#130 Explore 5/2/10


Here is the next Banksy that I found (see Exit Through the Gift Shop), in Chinatown. When I got there, the owners of the building that it was painted one were in the middle of restoring it from a graffiti attack. They said that they spend an average of 20 hours a week scrubbing off graffiti that people leave but they do it because they think it is art and they don’t want it destroyed. I am not sure how this looked when they got to it, but I am very glad that they are preserving it. Below are other pictures of the piece, probably my favorite in SF.
