NOT ART – NOT HERE

The “NOT ART” guy is just as paradoxical as the stencil messaging he leaves around the urban landscape. Question: are these temporary, or lasting moments of urban decay, ART or NOT ART? Can you find the beauty in the discarded, the irrelevant, the crumbling and/or the ironic?

The NOT ART guy does, and he believes in the beauty and the conversation, which he had with me on film. But true to the dichotomy, he would not let me put his face on camera even though he does not consider himself anonymous. I found him quite easily, selling his NOT ART t-shirts in Harvard Square.
