I remember seeing some of this guy's stuff around. It was really fucked up when he got prosecuted, AND THEN some advertizing agencies latched onto his ideas and did the same thing, and didn't get arrested. That shit really made me mad. Seeing art get exploited by telecommunications companies who APPARENTLY didn't have to abide to the same rules that a not-for-profit artist did? Fuck.

Ouff, that reminds me when Sony implemented those grafiti ads of little funky cartoon kids holding PSP's. I really like Roadsworth own commentary about that dischord: "We aggressively pursue graffiti writers for scrawling their names on a wall across from a massive backlit billboard advertising Big Macs.”

One of the many unfortunate cases where bad apples spoil the bunch, where actual graffiti artists are put under the same umbrella as lowly gang taggers. It's a real shame, because it's guys like this, along with Banksy, and I'm sure others, that are doing something truly interesting and inspiring with street art.

I really wish something interesting like this was happening in my city (Toronto), it would give me an excuse to go trekking with my Rebel...
