Seriously? Sad. Maybe he can do paintings in jail for his legal defense fund. I'd buy!

Wonder if someone ratted him out. Did I say sad? Sad...:(

yes, this is unbelievably sad.
...now we're just left with billboards and corporate advertisements (those are the real visual vandals who should be arrested.) ...i love this guy's art, and it is ART.

Maybe now he'll be forced to make the jump to galleries, and become wealthy and get invited to fabulous parties.
Seriously, my thoughts go out to him. He's prolific to a level that it's pathological, it's maybe a compulsive disorder.

I started a tribute to Girafa, the most prolific graffiti writer the Bay Area has known to date.

well,everybody in the graff scene is bound to get caught sooner or later,it was his time but dnt dwel on it cause when he gets out he will eventually be forgotten and do something productive..be remember there are alot of other artist out there with symbols or characters tht need to be taken serious(meaning other graff veterans) just take a look outside your window there is graff everywhere and dnt hate...one
