Melbourne based artist Buff Diss has hung up his spray cans, now using masking tape to create his pieces. The decaying of the tape wearing away is part of the appeal of the piece.

    Love it.
    If all streets where painted nobody would throw rubbish on the street. Well, maybe less I like to think.
    There is a graffiti artist in Switzerland who paints lamp post shades at night on the street.
    Great idea.
