Yote hit up Washington, D.C. recently, and while he put up a number of wheatpastes, I just want to focus on one particular block that he put in a few places. To me at least, Yote’s Corn image, unlike his animal pieces, doesn’t really tell a story or allow for much interaction with its environment or the public beyond an aesthetic presence. Instead, it feels more like a tag.
I’m a big fan of people like Mighty Mo, Sweet Toof and Bloke who essentailly use characters as their names, and tag with those, I don’t think I’ve ever come across a (character/image-based) wheatpaste before though that gave me the impression of being a tag. Just think it’s something interesting.
