reclaims public space with spray cans and chalk.
once ran for senate with the slogan “free teeth for the toothless.”
a little awkward, a little arrogant
and i think i might have offended him.
“some define you as a painter, a muralist, a graffiti artist -”
“- i’m not a graffiti artist.”
“the cops think you are.”
“the cops don’t define me.”
“my point being, you’re labeled these things, but how do you define yourself?
what do you do and why do you do it?”
i admire him.
he does everything i was taught to do.
and i was finally able to crack a smile from him by the end of the shoot.
oh if only i had seen this before the interview.
you can check out his art here.
