If he can make rhinos cool, perhaps he can make graffiti legal. Over at Wired, our friends inform us that Marc Ecko is leading a crusade against Bloomberg’s ban of spray paint and markers. He’s also started stillfree.com which is a “freedom of expression” site chock-full of graffiti links and info. Something else happened recently which leads us to believe his pro-tag movement is already catching on: a graffiti event in LA was actually condoned by Caltrans.
We’re way interested in watching this battle unfold, especially since we’ve seen Ecko get riled up already. His explosive presentation at the Aspen Design Summit could have just as easily been named the title of his video game, “Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure.”
