Daniel Johnston mural defaced (again)

DJ

“AUSTIN (KXAN) – Taggers have defaced one of Austin’s most iconic murals.

The “Hi, How Are You” mural adorns a business wall on the University of Texas “drag” at the intersection of 21st and Guadalupe streets.

This past weekend, vandals painted grafitti across the wall’s mid-section.

It’s been a familiar symbol to Austinites for almost 20 years.

Created by local eccentric artist and musician Daniel Johnston in the early 90s, the mural has been featured in commercials, and become a collection of T-shirts, even worn by famous artists like Kurt Cobain.

If you’d like to help out in graffiti removal, you can visit the city’s website for more information.” [KXAN]
