Reverse Graffiti

Drivers hustling to the city’s bustling North Beach neighborhood through the Broadway Tunnel Tuesday got a pleasant surprise — etched into the grimy walls lining the roadway was a tranquil urban forest.

The unique mural was created by British-based artist Paul “Moose” Curtis using a technique called reverse graffiti or clean tagging.

With the aid of San Francisco police and public works officials, Curtis spent the night blasting away at the years of grime with a high-powered water cannon.

There’s also a Flickr photoset of the project if you’d like to see more.
