I watched the film Exit through the Gift Shop the other evening. It’s an entertaining look at street art. I’m not a big fan of most graffiti: I find the bulk of it to be uninspired vandalism for the sake of vandalism. There are those few, however, that really capture what I think is the essence of modern art: humor.
After watching it, I was inspired–not to spider up a scaffold and make my mark on some concrete, but to draw a portrait of Fox News president Roger Ailes dressed up like a character from a 50 year old science fiction novel.
It was either that, or a chewing gum mosaic. And I don’t think my teeth could handle that.
