    Who cares, the broad is right, a long time ago is a long time ago and hes a sold out piece of shit now.

    do you even know what selling out means you retard? selling out is compromising your artistic integrity for money, he doesn’t do that, he does what he wants and gets paid for it, something a lot of us would jump at, given the opportunity. its such a dumb stereotype to call anyone who is making money out graffiti/street art a sellout, all it boils down to is jealousy.

    He did compromise his artistic integrity when he stopped putting up his pieces on roof tops and bill boards and moved it to galleries. Part of his appeal was all in the location

    yeah, thats a fair point, however in my opinion he’s smashed it enough, he’s smashed it so much that not only do the majority of writers and street artists know of him, so do a vast chunk of the general public. Now you do not get that kind of recognition without some serious work, far more work than all the internet nobodys who come and bitch about shit have accomplished. So if he’s making some money off some prints or tees or whatever i’m all for it, he’s earned it.

    I bet he still hits the street anyway, do you really think he’s going to admit to illegal activities on camera? c’mon, nobody hits it that hard consistently as he did and then just stops completely. it looks more like he’s annoyed with his wife bcos she said anything at all, by saying ‘a long time ago’ she can be quoted admitting that he has involvement in illegal activities, i think thats why he’s pissed off, she was meant to stay quiet or say ‘no comment’.

    Nobody is mentioning that he is a huge biter. I love how people appeal to celebrities celebrity when defending them. Not impressed.

    It’s not like he was filmed getting his work up…oh wait…he was….in numerous documentaries. He didn’t have to snap at her like that though. I think he just got shook cause it was TMZ and when TMZ gets you, it’s brought up everywhere. But he still didn’t need to talk to his wife like that.

    OBEY is the label of a poser. Anyone who puts up the posters is just fueling trend.
