We should have known something was up when street artist Saber tweeted this photo to us yesterday. It's a picture of a Panda Express fortune that simply reads, "a fascinating project is in your future."
This afternoon, reports came in from LA Taco that the longtime Los Angeles tagger has embarked upon his biggest project to date -- tagging the sky above Downtown LA. Some of the skywritten messages include "Art Is Not A Crime," "Art Work Rebels," "Upperplayground," and the artist tags "Saber Revok Risky MSK" (complete with an American flag).
According to Juxtapoz (which also happens to be one of the skywritten messages), Saber is protesting the Los Angeles City Council's moratorium on street murals.
Head over to LA Weekly for an explanation of the city's baffling opposition to street murals (and tolerance of huge advertising billboards) but for those with short attention spans, the Los Angeles Times summarized the sky writing saga in a set of tweets.
