    Is there a story behind this or is it just "yeah, vandalism is cool"?

    So basically I'm justified in thinking this guy should be fined hundreds of thousands of dollars?

    Live by the sword, die by the sword. When you base your business model on youth street culture, and activities that are sometimes against the law, like skateboarding and graffiti, you better not complain when it happens to you - see also Shepard Fairey's battle against tagging on his fancy building in LA.

    Personally, i'd be furious, but I don't make my living repackaging graffiti/street culture for clueless suburban kids.

    Obviously Supreme's "Fuck the law" stance should be completely supportive of this piece of (ahem) "street art expression".

    While I generally have a good experience at Supreme LA, my visits back in the day to Supreme NY were always marred by hyper snotty/rude staff. One guy put on his headphones rather than answer a question about a pair of $290 skate pants (in 1996!). Mind u, my question was "why are these so expensive?" But apparently that's "the vibe".

    Nice work Berliners; you're not going to be co-opted by the Supreme-man...chuckle.

    Graffiti on broken down old brick buildings and lifeless public objects from bus stops to trains can bring beauty to the bleak inner city landscape. Painting on stores or even worse natural objects always makes me sad. Still, if your business revolves around graf lifestyle then you should expect to become a target, for ironical purposes if no other reason is found.

    Exactly! I think it's awesome that this happened to their store front - not that I have anything against Supreme, but it just seems "right". I also think that if they clean it off they should be thoroughly razzed.

    Aside from the whole concept of who he is choosing for his targets (which in my opinion is the ONLY thing he has going for him.) These have got to be some of the worst tags ever. If these same "tags" were on some nondescript wall somewhere no one would pay the slightest bit of attention to them.

    I'll have to walk by this afternoon and see if it's been cleaned up or still there.

    boring. but it was kind of cool how fast he works. I'm more interested in what happens to him when he gets caught than what he's doing.

    I didn't feel like starting a new thread to say this, so it goes here:
    I just recently got the preview for the Invader show at JLG - I can't believe the prices he charges! Don't get me wrong, I like seeing Invader pieces when I'm traveling, but I don't get why anyone would pay $10K for an "original" when any DIY handyman could recreate it for $10 without there being any noticeable differences. Invader is one street artist that absolutely does NOT translate to the fine art world, IMO. But some of his Rubix Cube pieces (NOT the recent ones) are pretty cool...

    I like it. Like he said on facebook, who would say no to be offered to paint with a robot car! I'd love to hear the story about what happened to the mural. He hinted there might have been drama...
