    haha, exactly.

    heed demi, exit through the gift shop is a nice watch.

    i've always loved the work he did for the palestinians, below are some favourites.

    that's on the wall the israeli's built, he's always been my favourite vector artist, doing a research thesis on him.

    but it's alot fucking harder than i thought, is graffiti considered art or vandalism question shouldn't be this hard.

    alot of artists copied him after he started his vector style graff work.

    for years nobody knew what he looked like, he was like the batman of the graff world, worked while you slept.

    that's him there, i think the enigma of not knowing what he looked like sold his art more.

    it's always refreshing to see his street art flourish in proper museums.

    Exit Through The Gift Shop is a faux documentary, just so you all know.

    MBW was created in the documentary, all bullshit.

    Still, cool watch.
