“I have a deep respect for anyone who is willing to put their face on a bus stop bench knowing what people do to them. I thought it would be fun to do my own take on our local realtor advertisements.” –Phil Jones

December 2013, in al-Khalifa street, Old Cairo
Earlier this month, British stencil artist DS painted one of his signature characters, an old Hello Kitty spoof he’d long ago dubbed Bad Kitty, on an Islington wall along Essex Road.

Amusing, but it’s still vandalism of private property, even if you call it “street art.”
