Look Mum, I'm Painting Walls Legally Now

MobstrSeptember 2012


Stavanger, Norway

In perhaps a playful bite at the notion of having been invited to, then painting at a world-renowned street art festival, Mobstr (UK) responded with this subversive tongue-in-cheek piece for the 2012 edition of Nuart. The work also references the rapidly shifting laws and societal norms on what defines art worth keeping in the public arena and what is deemed as vandalism and warranting removal.
