The artist was invited by ARTURb to do the mural, which features a skeleton with some camera skills.

If you remember, Gertsch had a fantastic series of paintings of Patti Smith completed in the 1970s that have been shown around the world and at Gagosian Gallery.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 03, 2014
Tools of Criminal Mischief (TOCM) represents the humor and independence of the underground through the methods of misconduct and delinquency. TOCM expresses the artistic freedom of deviant behavior in a “tongue in cheek” style. The philosophy of non-conformity is an attitude rich in history and fun. The TOCM aesthetic shines a light on the irony and stigma that is often associated with a lifestyle people infatuate and romanticize. It is the method behind the brilliant and hilarious madness of the lawbreaker...
