I want to be a noncomformist, like everybody else

Living in L.A., I see more than my fair share of tagged surfaces. It's nothing new and all surfaces are game. My friend who lives in Pacific Heights (S.F.) had her car tagged. Sort of funny. but not. Some of it's actually interesting and can be a beautiful urban art form (I'm still trying to figure out who invented that font they all use). I recently received an email on this graffiti artist out of the U.K. who has turned this art into higher level of fine/pop art. It's art with a political manifesto. This stuff is crazy genius. It totally intrigues me and I love his intellectual sense of humor. Sort of makes those guys tagging on the 405 look like a bunch of little cry babies. check out banksy's work:
