British singer Joss Stone is battling to save an iconic U.S. graffiti mecca after the owner announced plans to demolish it.
Street artists from all over the world have travelled to the 5 Pointz building in Long Island City, New York to spray-paint colourful images on the former factory's walls.
The property has become a well-known landmark, and Stone shot the promo for her 2007 single Tell Me 'Bout It there. She also recruited graffiti artist Jonathan 'Meres' Cohen to cover her in body paint for the cover of her album Introducing... Joss Stone the same year.
Last month (Mar11), it emerged 5 Pointz's owner Gerald Wolkoff is considering plans to demolish the building and replace it with a complex of high-rise apartment blocks - and Stone has now joined a campaign to save it.
In a post on her Twitter.com blog, she has uploaded a link to an online petition against the development plans and writes, "Please check out this link and sign the petition to save 5 Pointz... This is where I did my Tell Me Bout It video. Meres one is the guy who painted my body for 'Introducing'."
