Buzz of the week Marc Jacobs VS graffiti artist Kidult

kidult-with-rhyme-and-reason-1French graffiti artist Kidult continues to spread the message against luxury brands.His slogan is “Your luxury is our misery.”

All these retail outlets have once used graffiti as a commercial tool to get more money and be “cool” without knowing anything about the culture. I didn’t simply say “hello” to them. If they really like graffiti, I just gave them what they love”, Kidult says.

Actually he is referring to the last time Kidult tagged a Marc Jacobs store in Soho, in May 2012. After Kidult painted the word “ART” in pink on the store’s facade, Marc Jacobs used it as inspiration for the sale of a limited edition “Art by Art Jacobs tee” with a photo of the graffiti on it for $689 at the Soho store.

Of course Kidult wasn’t pleased and tweeted “SHAME on you, YOU COPY @therealkidult to make money with it, capitalist thieve.”

So you think Kidult had his revenge?
