I know that
(a) what I'm saying applies to the words in the image above, not to the exhibition in question here, and
(b) this will be one of the least popular things I've written here, but:
No. The the talent, the skill, the vision, the artistry, the message, the wow... no matter how much of that you have, you still don't get to paint without permission on stuff that isn't yours.
A giant crime? Of course not. But I can't abide people who say it's no crime at all. The most incredible street art is no different in this respect from the crudest tag. It isn't in my heart to pick a fight over it, but it seems to go unsaid all the time.
1) I agree.
If you paint without permission on property that isn't yours, you are vandalizing, and no level of artistry justifies that.
I get that some graffiti is great art, but its obnoxious to think you can express that talent wherever you want, in violation of someone else's rights.
Give the Governor a "Harumpf!"
I didn't get a harrumpf out of that guy!
Work work work, work work work, hello boys, I missed you...
(And thanks for not leaving me alone out there with that opinion.)
But mostly the joke about boobs.
And hey, Robyn Hilton, actress and owner of same... turns 74 this year. Now why the hell did I have to go and look THAT up?
