NYC’s Own Zorro

Just recently I discovered Poster Boy NYC. Have you seen him? The masked man roams around the city’s subways cutting and pasting wall posters transforming them into public art. To me, his poignant work has a kind of crude beauty and his social commentary is right on the money.

Why then is he being hunted by the police and locked up like a common criminal? Because he is vandalizing public property. Is his work illegal? Admittedly, yes. But is it wrong? I would rather call it a freedom of speech; a freedom of art.
