We are heading down to check out the new Silicon Valley Contemporary art fair this weekend in the South Bay Area, and one of the things we are excited to check out is The Hole NYC's curation of KATSU's drone graffiti paintings. As stated in the video, "Katsu's new tool for urban decoration is a drone with a spray can. He's debuting it—and testing it—at the 2014 Silicon Valley Contemporary." Here is a video to get the idea...

Using a fire extinguisher, Katsu recently decorated aka scribbled the exterior of the Eyebeam Gallery in Chelsea with gold paint in part of the F.A.T. Lab exhibition. To no surprise, the spray carried over to the neighboring building of Paula Cooper Gallery and this video caught some of the action and reaction. We doubt it was unintentional for some odd reason? Publicity stunt? Hmmmm...

Katsu has a way with making sure he gets your attention in very simple ways.

Walking around New York one will eventually notice Katsu’s dedication to placing his skulled priority mail stickers on just about everything. Well, these stickers just became oversized and evolved into a 3-color silkscreen print that was available in a limited edition through 1xrun. Sold out fast.

Here is another installment from Crack & Shine focusing on graffiti writer Katsu. Watch as he explains that graffiti is not art, decorative graffiti is wack, and the easier the graffiti the better. Katsu also catches a tag on a homeless person and is seen doing damage around town. He leaves the viewer with this simple quote, “Graffiti writers should love graffiti, and people in the public should hate it.” Nice filming and editing, making it stand out amongst your typical graffiti videos.

New Katsu truck taking a rest from the daily grind. Nice and bold.

Who would have known that fire extinguishers would eventually become a fierce and destructive tool for vandalism? Didn’t see that coming 10 years ago.
