Red Widow

Red Widow - Ads for Spiderman

Here’s one to chew on:  If God forbid you’re an artist and you put up graffiti or wheat paste on a public wall and get caught, get ready to have the book thrown at you.  You can expect to be treated like a criminal and it might even ruin your life.

I’ve been seeing these red widow spiders on many walls throughout New York and they look quite cool.  Knowing the process of what is involved in putting up art in public on the sly, you gotta give these gigantic pieces respect.

Then, I discovered that there is no art involved and in fact, these are teasers for the new Spiderman movie that is scheduled for release in 2012!  What a double standard!  You can even see the spiders are painted over a wall that formerly housed legitimate street art (a popular spot for Hanksy’s work, just to name one artist who puts up work here).

I am assuming the movie studio offered the city a chunk of money to put up “legit street art,” and the city has bent over to take it while seeing huge dollar signs.  RIDICULOUS!

Corporate Street Art is a crime!  There’s nothing artsy about a boardroom full of slightly creative people going through an approval process and then bribing the city so they can show off their advertising.   Are these people going to be arrested?  I don’t think so.  They might snow the masses, but we all know better.

Don’t be fooled!
