Nothing lasts forever in this cold November rain — least of all street art. This morning we saw a Space Invader getting zapped — and would-be bombers are now being arrested at 5Pointz. But Williamsburg artist B.D. White is okay with the transient nature of his “mindful vandalism.”

“If you want things to last, you don’t paint them in the street,” he tells B+B. “The goal is to get legitimate work from it — work that pays and I don’t get in trouble for doing it.”

And White is going legit. In a few weeks he’s installing a painting at a restaurant in Astoria. Watch our video to see how White gets his messages across despite a high school injury that confined him to a wheelchair.
