Taking graffiti to new heights

LOS ANGELES (AP) - September 20, 2011

A Los Angeles graffiti artist is protesting the city's crackdown on tagging and street art.

The artist goes by the name of Saber.

He says he hired five pilots to sky write his messages in a cloudless sky over city hall yesterday.

One said "End Mural Moratorium," and the other, "Art Is Not A Crime."

Saber charges on his blog the city is removing public murals.
