army of one in jeopardy.
army of one/jc2 pastes some of the most compelling street art. in new york, in the world- anywhere- it's a gift. link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/armyofonejc2/
he's been arrested.
one great thing about spring is that when the weather gets warm more fantastic art appears on the street. lately, especially, i've been waiting for new appearances of the imploring boy with the grenade. from what i read here there's a beautiful grenade boy out there that none of us got to see. and that's a loss to art lovers. a few pics.
but more than that, jc2's message is, in a cynical world, so, so needed. army, a veteran new york firefighter in his 40's, and committed volunteer for children's well being, pastes his images as a heartfelt plea for peace. this is someone who spends his life trying to help and protect people- especially children. if this is an "outlaw", this is an outlaw for a better world, where children aren't victims of atrocity or abuse.

i hope the beautiful voice will never be muffled.
