    Angry Steet Thug Turned Fine Artist?

    is anyone else sick of street thugs turning rappers. well i just read about a street thug turning fine artist. he's being called the tupac of modern art. no joke. apparently he's a video artist who's work has been picked up and distributed internationally at furniture retail chains. check out his ridiculous website www.elliotgrey.com - is anyone else tired of image over riding content?

    I don't knowwhat you mean by image overiding content, but that site is really ridiculous. I didnt get to see for colours grey but it sounds like a gimmick. on a side note that guy is no street thug...I should know I am one!

    'flamer' tends to register in my brain rather then 'blazing' after being attacked by that much rainbow. Yeesh.

    i'm glad to hear that this guy aggravates you as much as he aggravates me. but the story gets better! i found another article on this fagtard in ART magazine that says he was shot and spent time in jail. perhaps we should lock him up again before he does further damge to the video art medium.

    I wonder how his former cellmates responded to his rainbow colored sensibilities?

    Elliot Grey was born July 5, 1976. Throughout his upbringing and studies, Grey was heavily exposed to painting, the video medium and hip-hop culture; contrasting influences that became apparent in his multi-dimensional work and character.
    Now who the hell said that hip hop is the opposite of art? Isn't music considered a form of art? Aren't people who make music considered artists?

    Pshh!

    Hip hop is art...

    The way Jenna Jameson is an artist as compared to Mel Gibson?
