Bomb It

To protect priceless paintings from thieves we should transfer them onto immovable objects.

Oh, wait, street artists, like the ones in this documentary, already do that.

Beginning with a man named Cornbread, who in 1967 spray-painted his moniker around Philadelphia, tagging became a craze in urban areas across America.

Considering themselves soldiers in an emotional, an artistic and a territorial war, faceless artists, like TAKI 183, Os Gêmeos, Terrible T-KID 170, Obey creator Shepard Fairey, and rapper KRS-One, descended upon their respected cities, bombing their neighbourhood with their nicknames creatively rendered with aerosol cans.

As the movement spread to other countries, its self-aggrandizing origins were repurposed for political protest and government sanctioned public art.

From subway walls, to Paris runways, to Hip Hop culture, Bomb It recounts the evolution of this controversial art form that begot a renaissance.

Incidentally, until now, I thought building graffiti was just the architect's autograph.
