WATCH: Wall Dogs Of NYC


'You've got to be brave to take charge,' says one Wall Dog. Another states uncategorically: 'I will absolutely be pushing paint with a brush until I'm dead. There's no doubt about that.'

This video highlights the daily experiences of New York City's 'wall dogs', a term used to describe the men and women who chain themselves to walls in order to paint massive advertising murals by hand. Forget plastic billboards and posters, this is craftsmanship in its truest form.
