Last night, someone went over COPE2‘s still-in-progress Bowery Wall with the word “snitch,” painting it in black fire-extinguisher lettering. When we arrived at the wall this morning, the writer was on a scissor lift fixing the work while iconic photographer Martha Cooper took photos. COPE2 appeared unfazed by the ragging. “It ain’t no thing,” he told ANIMAL.
