A Very Special Dung Of The Day: Street Art

I am certain many of you hereabouts are familiar with Paul Richard. He is the guy that goes around putting his signature on stuff and calls it art. I have never been a big fan of his work (in fact I detest it). That is, until I saw this.


This delightful image comes courtesy of my Flickr contact AP. He writes:

…this was on bedford (surprise), i think between maybe N5th and 6th…just leaning against a wall.

Is it art? I don’t know. However I have only the utmost respect for someone who has the chutzpah to touch this mattress. Shit stain aside, I’d be terrified of taking a few friends home if you know what I mean! Otherwise if the former owner of this mattress is reading this, you might want to pay a visit to the Bedwetting Store.

  2. ok this was outside my house on North 5th from my building the night before with the rest of the garbage, someone actually picked it up and moved it on Bedford Ave then wrote that on it. I was so disgusted to see someone actually handled it…not art, just f’ing gross nasty garbage from my hipster building.

  4. Tania: Maybe contracting a raging case of crabs (or bed bugs) will be Mr. Richard’s next performance art piece?

    P.S.: I am truly sorry you have to live with shit (no pun intended) like this.
