The art world is full of snobs so you have to force your way in..... nice idea.
Artistic terrorism - well sort of.

That is hilarious and quite interesting... I guess It's been done by others too, but I really like the way the pieces seem to fit with the sorrounding paintings - untill you dicover the grafitti behind the admiral or the fighter-bomber wings on the beetle... thanks for passing that on...

Perhaps guerilla-art would be a proper term for it :rolleyes:

He seems to have some artistic talent. Andy Warhol comes to mind.

those four paintings definitely show artistic talent in a variety of mediums too

nice approch, you shouldnt be dead, an alcoholic or whatever to be a well known artist

Hehe... Nice homepage he's got. I like his "manifesto":

• Be aware that going on a major mission totally drunk out of your head will result in some truly spectacular artwork and at least one night in the cells.

• When explaining yourself to the Police its worth being as reasonable as possible. Graffiti writers are not real villains. I am always reminded of this by real villains who consider the idea of breaking in someplace, not stealing anything and then leaving behind a painting of your name in four foot high letters the most retarded thing they ever heard of.

• Remember crime against property is not real crime. People look at an oil painting and admire the use of brushstrokes to convey meaning. People look at a graffiti painting and admire the use of a drainpipe to gain access
Couldn't find the cows though... would like to see those...
