Poster Boy: Kids Are Really Against The Empire!

Amazing, famous New York based urban artist and ad-alterer Poster Boy will be in London on Saturday for the “The War of Art” book launch at Pure Evil gallery! Additionally they will officially kick off a legal defense fund for artists called “Kids Are Really Against The Empire”…

Kids Are Rallying Against The Empire (K.A.R.A.T.E.) is a grass roots effort we hope to eventually turn into a non-profit organization. Sadly, when dealing with the legal system most artists don’t know, understand, or are intimidated into forgoing their rights. Artists are often poorly represented in court and do not have financial access to proper counsel. K.A.R.A.T.E. is committed to helping artists defend themselves in court for art-related crimes conceived in public space. (Poster Boy)

Poster Boy, who was sentenced to eleven months jail earlier this year, achieved iconic status especially in the ad-busting movement because of his crazy, mind-blowing and popular ad-alterations in New York City’s subway. If you would like to know more about the “Kids Are Really Against The Empire” fund, write an e-mail to kara…@gmail.com or visit the book launch party on Saturday! I will be there…
