Street artisan WK Interact has been executing his ‘Bring Me Back‘ anti-war campaign with his trademark black and white wheat pastings down and around the Lower East Side. Evidently graffiti writers bombed some of the soldiers on Rivington Street, and in this new age of the internet, the artist responded by buffing over the entire wall and releasing a statement:
â€œFinally a piece appeared on the street that made viewers remember the fact that fellow human beings are being massacred by the thousands. I have tried to reach out for help on behalf of the men in arms with my recent â€œBring Me Backâ€ installations around Manhattan. Itâ€™s tragically unfortunate for them that other artists would rather self-promote than convey this important message.”
While we support any campaign that involves bringing the troops back he completely loses us at the end with this zinger:
“This is a classic example of why this war goes on.â€
So stop your bombing already graffiti writers, you’re just prolonging this quagmire.
