Reformed Surrey graffiti artist works to rehab those drawn to life of 'tagging'
from the article by Tom Zillich in The Vancouver Sun:
Reformed graffiti artist Pontus Agren is drawing up plans to save a rehab program aimed at the kind of "criminal" he used to be.
Once arrested and charged for illegal graffiti writing, the Surreyite hopes his thesis on the RestArt (Restorative Art) program, which works to rehabilitate graffiti taggers in Metro Vancouver, will help ensure its survival.
A similar restorative justice program helped steer Agren clear of graffiti-related convictions back in 1998.
