NYPD case against Essam Attia, a street artist in NYC. Mr. Attia has been putting up fake NYPD signs warning citizens about drones. He now faces "56 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, grand larceny possession of stolen property and weapons possession". Ridiculous and tragic all at the same time.
On that note, this weeks NA Films Monday Movie is my favorite film of 2010, Exit Through the Gift Shop. It is perhaps the best documentary on street art made so far. I say that mainly because of the amount of on the street footage of so many street artists that the film contains. The last 20 minutes or so also contain some insanely insightful commentary on the nature of art in general.
