matthew-stibbe-apology

A Los Angeles gallery owner is sorry for telling lies in a failed bid to distance himself from an arrest at the opening of his graffiti exhibition. After graffiti writer REVOK was busted during a paid appearance at 33Third gallery and graffiti supply store, owner Matthew Stibbe told ABC News, “I did not pay him $1000. I did not pay any of the artists to show up here.” But none of that was true. Reading off a piece of paper, Stibbe admits he was dishonest and that all the artists were paid, before apologizing for adding to oversharing graffiti writer REVOK’s list of troubles.
