NYPD Intel Op Targets Dot-Matrix Graffiti Bike

For WIRED: Ryan Singel 04.10.07

Joshua Kinberg's internet-connected, sidewalk-printing graffiti bike
got him a lot of attention ahead of the 2004 Republican National
Convention; he was Boing Boinged, Slashdotted and featured on CNN and
in Popular Science.

Though he didn't know it at the time, his gadget also landed him a spot
in secret files being compiled by the New York Police Department's
intelligence arm against protest groups across the country.

Fresh Stencil Uploads: Topping 6500!

Another weekly dose of stencil pleasure, just in time for not doing your USA taxes.....

A nice batch of submissions from Madison, WI hit the inbox over the past week.

Steve Frio dropped off nice photographs of some pieces he did in New Jersey.

Janet Bike Girl added photos of a commissioned t-shirt job to her growing archive.

Got a one-off from Argentina honoring the Godfather of Soul's passing (RIP James).

Finally, a sliver of stencils from the recent trip to Egypt. Nothing too exciting, but what can you expect from a one-party-ruled country.

See ya next time!

Defacer With Mystery Agenda Is Attacking Street Art

Nicole Bengiveno/The New York Times

The evidence is the bright green and purple splashes of paint that
began appearing on walls in Brooklyn and Manhattan more than a month
ago. The carefully aimed blobs obscured or disfigured dozens of pieces
of street art created by people who may not be household names, but who
have achieved the esteem of peers and some recognition from the
mainstream art world. The targets of the paint attacks have included
posters, paper cutouts pasted on walls, and images stenciled on the
sides of buildings.
