Kendall Jenner’s mug was tagged by a gleeful and highly illegal drone in the early hours of Wednesday morning, Wired reports. The drone, rigged so that it could carry a can of red spraypaint, scribbled a few lines onto the young reality TV star’s face before being pulled down by its designer, artist KATSU.
Here is a thoughtful article, in the New York Post, about the "complex prestige game" that informs the New York graffiti community's disdain toward Banksy: "'Street art' is associated with whimsy and even gentrification—things the mainstream considers socially good, or at the least, nondestructive."
On Tuesday, a ferocious vandal urinated on Banksy's flower-bursting Twin Towers stencil, as a cluster of awestruck humans watched. The culprit's name is Freddi, he's an eight-year-old pug, and his caretaker is Elisa Casas, a lifelong New Yorker who was also cast on the Sundance Channel reality show Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys.
