    Kinda cool... and yet, why the hell would you want to encourage this guy?

    I've never been a big fan of the rockstar element of the art world. I appreciate his youthful energy, but I can't help but think that this looks like an episode of behind the music.
    Do you Mentler?

    Booting up a new sketchbook.

    I remember watching "Whales and Orgies" a few years back and getting really inspired to do art. And ever since then he's been a favorite of mine. I wonder where I can find "Dirty Hands" now that it's finally finished... thanks for the heads up Lok!

    All I want is this guys energy and fearlessnes and the I don't give a shit what you think about my art attitude. I've always found that I work better when I just dont care and just play with what I do. Trying to mix that with a responsible life can be difficult.

    This guy seems like nothing but a douche? Why would anyone care about him or want to watch this movie?

    A lot of good and interesting artists were/are considered douches. Does not mean you can't learn from them. Plus they tend to be more creative, than the ones who whine and complain.

    "I like to steal shit"
    "I like to steal shit"
    "I just steal shit, f*** it"
    "I could be breaking into your house"

    While I don't mind the graphiti artist side of him, the guy seems like a wanker. Yeah we get it, you steal lots of stuff and get into fights, BRAVO, you are such a tough guy".

    Another extremest! Iv met many people simmilar to him in my life both with in and outside the art relm. Its always the crowd that fuels thier intent, but in the end isolation melts away the illusion to showcase paper thin concepts and stagnent craftemenship. I appluad his ego and get out there mentality but I cant help but wonder would he function outside the rebel fasaud?

    I am not impressed. He is just a vandalizing peoples property! Would you like someone go and spray paint a penis on your car that you would expect a 11 year old to draw; and the 11 year old can draw better to boot.

    nah, shit. Bring on the Shit Gallery from the Netherlands!

    Hilarious.

    The people that hate graffiti don't watch the whole preview video and post, unknowing that he changes his act by the end of it.

    The people that love his assholish/freespirit (whichever way you lie) steal and destroy attitude, watch the entire thing and are disappointed that they can't continue to live vicariously through him after he changed his act.

    Whichever one you are, hes created some great art.

    "If people stop buying my art and t-shirts, I can still fucking rob your house." That's fucking hilarious!

    I like how you think he's a douchebag because he experienced what sounds like a genuine reflection on his life and wanted to make a change for the better, haha...

    Something tells me you didn't see the second half of the video. At first I thought the same, but then it looks like he makes a reassesment of his life (while in jail for 3 months) and is trying to turn it around. I find that to be something to give him credit for.

    I've been seeing alot of this stuff recently and it's popular where i'm going to school. This dude, Adam Francey does something similar but it's entirely his thing. he paints on old drift wood and warped plywood. his pieces will have nails and screws sticking out, but it's purely graffiti art. Best thing about it is how he manages to cram so much shit into one big painting.

    http://www.adamfrancey.com/

    Anyways, this guy has an awesome way of doing things, great energy and inspirational. for those who dislike him, i guess it's your preference on what you see as art. I don't think he sucks at all, he's obviously doing it this way cause that's what he enjoys. It would probably bore him out of his mind to sit at a computer with a tablet. dave's just isn't the kind of person who sits still when doing art, he moves around a lot.

    hmm, can't remember the other graffiti artist...his last name is McGee. if anyone knows who i'm talking about, pass the word.
