Twist on tagging

I woke up thinking about the fame/anonymity line that successful artists/graffiti practitioners have to navigate.  Made me think about SF’s Barry McGee/Twist.

From a cool interview by Samuel Borkson where Barry McGee emphasizes living, eating kale and going surfing.  When asked what he’d do with a lot of money Twist replies:

BMG: I’m more interested in less than more. Our society has become obsessed with having more, having it all. To what end? Excess, while fascinating to watch, is not the answer to me. Most over budgeted art projects I have seen are terrible.
