What does BORF mean?
- Borf was a graffiti campaign seen in and around Washington, D.C. during 2004 and 2005, carried out by John Tsombikos while studying at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. This four letter word was ubiquitous around the Northwest quadrant of Washington, and ranged from simple tagging to complete sentences to two-color stencils to the massive defacement on an overhead exit sign from the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge to Constitution Avenue. Tsombikos was arrested on July 13, 2005 after tips led police to his latest tag.One of the most visible tags was the "BUSH HATES BORF" message painted above other graffiti on the back wall of the Vision Lighting Building and visible from the Metro Red Line near the Takoma Metro station. This message was later replaced by a message saying "OBAMA HATES BORF" in early 2009. Then in late 2011, the notorious icon of Washington, DC culture was seen for the last time and finally painted over during the week of November 28. The graffiti was also reported to have appeared in New York City, San Francisco, Raleigh, North Carolina, Rome, Italy, and elsewhere.In 2009, director Paris Bustillos created a documentary film about the campaign entitled Borf!.
