(* One fact may have been changed to make me seem significantly more baller)
Anyway. I like graffiti. So I'd like to discuss it with you guys for my 3k post.
I mean of course there's a big legal thing. Let's get that "Elephant in the Room" taken care of first (intrigue, sick Final Edit!)
I mean. Tons of writers get flak. Jailtime. Community Service. Fines. You can discuss if legality is an issue and honestly I think it is. Although watching Bomb It! I did find out a bit about public opinion on public space. That is, public space can be made more beautiful by graffiti than by advertising. Also brought up the point that a billboard is a legal, sanctioned degradation of public space whereas good graffiti is the exact opposite.
Anyway, I guess I'll share a couple of my favorite pieces and you guys can discuss your favorites and whatnot. 3k. Yay.
Hm. Do I have thanks to lay out? Yeah, why not. Thanks, Sc1pio, for being the eternal baller. Thanks iGrok and Metal[x], for supporting my work. I still owe you that stencil, iGrok. Take 2. I bought the paper for it. Just gotta respray it and send it in a (more secure) packing tube. Ugh.
Thanks to Nyovne for being a baller mod and not banning me yet. Thanks to Chill for being hilarious. Thanks to all the community greats for making Team Liquid what it is. Oh, and a great big fucking thanks to iNkA for being hilarious too actually.
This is getting long. Here are pictures. Just punch me for misattributions.

Fairey. Massively prolific. Little overrated? I think so.
