Mathieu Tremblin’s “Graffiti Statue”

I am loving Mathieu Tremblin‘s latest work, Graffiti Statue. It was made for Art4Context’s 1+1=1 1+1=2 residency. The piece almost perfectly encapsulates the strategy of the stereotypical modern street artist: Only make art when you’re getting paid and make art that looks mildly rebellious but is actually socially acceptable and perfectly legal. Here’s a video documenting Graffiti Statue:
