ABCDEF‘s work is provocative. I feel like if you hand your average young adult a can of black spray paint and tell them to do something on a wall, they’d do a probably shittier version of stuff they saw on the internet, or some sort of ‘meaningful’ quote. ABCDEF’s work seems no more difficult to produce than your standard shitty throw up, and yet it seems gallery-worthy. It’s stroke-your-chin-and-ponder worthy. It’s simple and exciting.
There’s this great video where a disembodied John Baldessari tells Jason Schwartzman that fine art is like Gorgonzola cheese; if you give it to a child they will spit it right out. So you start giving them Velveeta cheese, and eventually they acquire a taste for Gorgonzola as they mature. ABCDEF is the Gorgonzola of street art. Thank god for Banksy, giving us hope that some day our cool uncles and mother’s friends may see ABCDEF’s work by accident and pause.
