"I don't really [portray] many people who I don't think are abusing their power. I chart these guys... My mercury is rising and when it gets to a certain point, I'll start drawing." -- Robbie Conal: Meet the Godfather of Guerrilla Street Art (Sarah Linn, KCET) posted by Room 641-A (3 comments total) 3 users marked this as a favorite
Oh hey! I see these all the time as I drive around LA and I knew his name, but I never really knew anything about him, so thanks for posting this. There's a Hammer & Pickle poster that I see right before I get on the freeway.

Seeing Conal's 2000 U.S. election posters artbombed all over downtown San Jose led to my first Metafilter post.

It was a simpler time on Metafilter and in the U.S.

Glad to see that he is still working; I'm sure he won't run out of subject material any time soon. Learn more about Conal's guerrilla poster efforts here.
