Norway Claims Second Biggest Graffiti Piece


With the MTA crew’s massive LA River roller wiped out by a federally funded ditch cleaning effort, what’s the next biggest piece of graffiti? Norwegian graffiti enthusiasts are vying for the title, touting a roller painted in an airfield southwest of Oslo. Asking “can you see us from outer space?,” the 60 foot high FOS Crew painting measures roughly 820 feet at its longest, just over half the size of MTA’s third of a mile monstrosity. Norwegian rappers Gatas Parlament have declared it the “world’s second largest piece of all time,” a compelling enough claim that the local newspaper chartered a flight for an aerial shot of this second place painting.
