Don't Be Stupid

This post goes out to all you wanna be gangstas: If you are going to tag something make, it a good tag. I'm one of those people who actually thinks graffiti has a place in art and art history. I was active in the art scene during the time Jean Michel Basquiat was making graffiti and bringing it to the mainstream as well as making a ton of money. So yes, graffiti can be profound, beautiful and even a way of making a good living. However, the pathetic scribbles that showed up on the shed down at the Gardens was definitely not any of that. It was just stupid.
