Is It Pro-Sex? Or Anti-People?

Posted by on Tue, Mar 8, 2011 at 10:46 AM

Someone has attacked Capitol Hill with a can of orange spray paint. First Christopher saw this (which makes me worry as well). A block or so away, another message was sprayed onto the side of a mailbox:

FuckMail.jpg

I can't figure out what the mailbox is trying to tell me. Is it telling me to fuck everyone, like, have as much sex as possible with as many people as possible? Or is it telling me to fuck everyone, like, everyone in the world can just go to hell and I am not to care about them at all?

I am confused.

I'm gonna go ahead and guess that the same graffiti artist is responsible for both of the graffiti posts this morning.

It means that society is going to collapse, soon.

@1 Which makes it more mysterious! In one message the "artist" is not worried. Laid back! Relaxed! But then in this one they're ANGRY. Or are they!?

"Not Worried" is in all caps (except, inexplicably for the "i"). "Fuck Every One" is correctly capitalized. This makes me think it is different people or the person believes in "Not Worried" more (or the person thinks that writing something large means it has to be in all caps).

I think this is a phenomenal example of Street Art and we need to get this guy a gallery show. The use of vernacular totally subverts the bourgeois mode of communication (letter writing) implied by the object thus 'altered'. Bravo, sir.

Like all art, it is up to the observer to interpret. I say Fuck On everybody!

#6 is right; the color is masterfully chosen for impact, powerful angsty contrast. Or maybe orange was on sale. Whatevs.
