Roger Waters - Street Artist.

Sure, we all know that Roger Waters is a member of one of the greatest rock groups of all time – Pink Floyd.  But did you know that he’s also participating in a street art project?  To promote his upcoming solo tour of The Wall, Waters has designed a Banksy-style campaign where quotes from Dwight Eisenhower are being put up randomly on walls in major markets in the US.  The twist:  the quotes are written in the Wall font.  The above picture says:  “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed those who are cold and those who are clothed.” – Dwight Eisenhower.  This project has backfired a bit as one of Waters’ crew posted over a beloved Elliott Smith mural in Los Angeles. Tear down the wall?
