I think Graffiti art in the right place would be pretty awesome. The genre took off when we were teens and has grown in sophistication since. I like some of the styles out there but I hate gang scrawl.

I used to be quite the graffitiist in my childhood, but this guy takes the cake.

For some reason the dark silhouettes and the smiley faces reminded me of Bad Company

The thing is, if he is caught, although he is a great artist with fans, he will be charged with vandalism! We actually got the opportunity to do this in art in school.
