You probably wouldn't be able to paint that back to white. Maybe. It would take a fudge ton of layers if so. I would guess they just pop it out and put in some new wall.

What I've done previously with murals in galleries is just to just use an electric sander to take back and then paint it over, paint stripper is good too

You just have to use primer. That's what it's for.

That has some amazing vibrancy and depth to it. Would love to just sit 2" away from it and get lost in the brushstrokes.

Just sorry I couldn't get a shot with the whole thing in it at high res. The room it was in was pretty small and the crowds were thick. I'm lucky I got what I did. I have to go back later now that the opening night party is over. If you haven't checked it out, other artists delivered some strong work too. I'm especially fond of what Craola and Nosego did.

Was the original drawing viewable? I would love to see a good pic of that, too.

Nope, just the mural and the drawing of The Cache.
