Laser Guided Democracy

As you know, I typically don’t do street art or graffiti on the blog. But this specific piece has always grabbed me for the great condensed sans, that has been stenciled out. The G specifically. Look at that giant chin.

I love the quick hit “Elvis” stamp that someone threw up right next to the fighter jet. It’s pretty funny to see the “discussion” of street artists and taggers as they try and battle it out for space on clean walls.

This is obviously a commentary on Iraq & Afghanistan, although a bit weird, because the silhouette of the fighter looks like an F-14, which has been out of commission for some time. Still, it does balance out well.
