Selling Out?

June17

A contentious issue sure, but one I couldn’t help but ponder over again this morning when I saw Blek Le Rats newest street art offering. Blek Le Rat is the godfather of the stencil art scene and without him we probably wouldn’t have masters such as Banksy, so when I saw that Blek’s new piece was commissioned and payed for by Hugo Boss, I couldn’t help but feel a little sad. Is he selling out against everything that street art stands for? Or is he simply an artist trying to make a career of his chosen path? What do you guys think?
