And is the same shade of pink as in the Teller ads

Or it is possibly a senseless act?
Also, calling this 'art' kind of feels like an insult to graffiti artists in general. I mean, it's pretty lousy.

i hate graffiti, it's a rare that u see graffiti workk that u consider as art. im livign in toronto and the whole town is covered with this graffiti trash. they should establish a new law to deal with this mess. the authority needs to be tougher to deal with these homeless kids who have nothing to do but trashing their towns.

i wouln't mind see these *******s in jail for a year or two for their careless acts.

That's a little too much don't you think? Aren't you perpetuating that all homeless youth are vandals?

I'm not saying that I agree with the way he chose to express himself or attempting to vindicate his crime, but he's probably opposed to the fashion industry stealing underground street culture, appropriating it (i.e. swagger jacking), and then shamelessly marketing it as exclusive (read: luxe pricing) to mass audiences.
I completely agree with you.

Anyone wanting to get with Kidult's stance can be part of the activism by getting hold of his merchandise, although the current T-shirt he was promoting on his website appears to be 'sold out', in more ways than one, some might say.

I don't have a particular opinion on grafitti, but how did he got away with that? I mean if you look at the width of each leather is pretty thick, and unless he did with a bucket of paint that must take a lot to spray in one night.

He probably mixed the paint and poured it in a fire extinguisher. There are many videos where he uses the fire extinguisher and sprays the paint on the walls and its a very quick and easy way to get on the walls.

i say they wear it as a badge of honor. phoebe philo taps something in that punk spirit. and although she subverts it so deeply in her clothes, it certainly lends some cred to the work she's doing.

I just checked out his blog. This guy is sick and obsessed with himself.
Activism is good, but not in this kind of way.
Some months ago he also damaged Kenzo store building with the same pink color paint:

Graffiti can certainly be art, it can entertain, and it can send an important message to people, but a lot of the time, it's just a dick-measuring competition being played out on the walls and surfaces around cities.

I just checked out his blog too,
His talking about anti-advertising etc. but isn't what he's doing just self-advertisement anyway?
