Got' Bombed For Bombin'!!!!!!!!!
Sharing my roots for art, Graffiti is a style that takes sheer skill and a good budget for high-quality spray paint to show people your views of our world through vandalism. Hey, hate that term as well. It's more an expression of my inner chaos and colorful soul all across the side of your pool. ^_^ In New York, Yoshitomo Nara, a contemporary Japanese pop artist known for sculptures and paintings of doe-eyed figures, was arrested in late February for tagging graffiti in the Union Square subway station. Nara was arrested at 3:10 a.m. on Feb 27 and charged with criminal mischief, possession of graffiti instruments, making graffiti and resisting arrest. True bomber fa real!!! Nara, 49, who lives and works in Tochigi Prefecture, was in New York for a solo exhibition of his work at the Marianne Boesky Gallery that runs Feb 28 through March 28. The online edition of Art in America magazine said Nara was caught tagging a graffiti portrait of two Japanese friends in the subway station and he was optimistic about his two days in lockup. He was quoted saying its was a nice experience in his life. Nara emerged on the art scene during Japan’s pop art movement in the 1990s and has held solo exhibitions worldwide. His works are on display at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Mr. Nara, i salute you.
