A Shepard Fairey poster near the Bowery, defaced by the infamous Splasher.

The Splasher has destroyed Manhattan and Brooklyn graffiti, often works by star artists like Shepard Fairey, Banksy (who was just profiled in the New Yorker), and the Brooklyn collective, Faile.

The Splasher's antics may or may not be the result of some ham-handed guerrilla marketing by American Apparel, which has a clothing line based on nothing but permutations of the t-shirt. American Apparel is also known for its quasi-porno ad campaigns.
