Not long after it went up it was tagged by Augor and Revok of MSK and Seventh Letter Crew. Somebody send pictures of it to Murakami.

We Fro Love You Barack!!

01 February 2008, 18.42 | Posted in Art, Other | No comments »

Our man Barry speaks often of his candidacy as one that is both hopeful and desirous of new beginnings. One that leaves behind the acrimonious politics that we the people have been literally choking on for the past eight years. Clearly his message has struck a chord with many. But could it be while he stirs our hopes for the future, he also helps us remember and give life to the still beautiful parts of our pasts?

What am I talking ’bout? Nothing less than Fro Power!
