If you've been following along with Gothamist, you'll know that the Splasher has been defacing streetart around the city recently. While many in the streetart community are upset with the Splasher's actions, Swoon has come up with her own solution - redo the pieces the vandal defaced. Sam Horine caught Swoon's pieces in Prospect Heights (around 5th Ave and Flatbush Ave), where you can still see the paint drippings from before she redid the pieces.

While it's great that Swoon took the time to fix her paste-ups, it will be all too easy for the Splasher to destroy them yet again.
