This is sponsored grafitii. It's on the side of Art Central in downtown Calgary which is one of my favourite places to go at the weekend because there's always something interesting to look at..artwork inside and artwork outside.
So this is graffiti...but not...I think it raises an interesting question. Can true graffiti be sponsored? Isn't the whole point about graffiti that it's supposed to be anarchic?
This particular piece is probably someone famous...a rapper maybe. Unfortunately I am hopeless with famous faces and names so I have no clue. Perhaps someone out there knows. I just like the energy of the piece...and at the entrance to a dull downtown back alley it makes a statement.
