So he built something on someone else's property, without the permission of the property owner, and people are upset that the owner might not want it there? How dare they try to repress his creative freedom...

Look at the pictures. If his 'art' had been artistic there'd be far fewer complaints.

All depends if you like his style I guess.  I'm sure the artist will love my project too, a fifty foot cardboard and rusting rebar yoga dog that's appearing to poop out his art.  Clearly only art haters will have a problem with this.

Yeah!  And now that I know this guys name, I'm going to paint a mural on his living room wall!  I'm not going to take anything, so I'm not hurting anyone.

/This is Seattle.  If he'd asked, I'm guessing someone would have given him permission.

You wanna pay for that? I don't.

Works of art are communist, subversive acts meant to keep people from doing their jobs to further the cause of capitalism freedom and sap us of our precious bodily fluids.
