I love that street artists are taking the piss out of Museum of Contemporary Art director Jeffrey Deitch.  The former New York gallery owner finally sold his soul to the corporate machine.  There’s a street art retrospective that just opened at MOCA in Los Angeles and there has been controversy surrounding the exhibit since its inception.  Street art around the city of angeles has been marked with a “Disapproved by Deitch” sticker and in this case, the work of D1G1TAL has gotten the seal of disapproval.  Say what you will, I have really liked everything I’ve seen from D1G1TAL on my brief trip to Los Angeles and you’ll definitely be seeing more work from D1G1TAL on a site that approves of his work.

I think the bonus artist will be Banksy.  In a quick perusal of the list, I see Blek Le Rat is missing.  Who else has been disapproved by Deitch?
