Posted on: July 29th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

Is paintball graffiti art something that could gain traction here in New York City?  Probably not, given people don’t take too kindly to dudes wearing masks and toting guns.

Nevertheless, this awesome little video sheds some light on the street art phenomenon.  We watch a pair of artists painting murals of two pop-culture badasses – Johnny Knoxville and Dave Grohl – all at the expense of Mountain Dew UK.  Just ignore the plug for a better viewing experience.

Noho’s ‘Peace Pentagon’ Boxed up, Ready for Demolition

Noho’s activist spirit is dead. Gone by way of luxury. The Peace Pentagon is about to follow. Demolition is nigh.
