Kidult Tags Maison Martin Margiela

  • Posted 71 months Ago

Looks like the Parisian graffiti artist Kidult has done his thing again, this time tagging the Maison Marin Margiela store in Belgium and writing "OUR MISERY NOT YOUR'S." Prior to this, Kidult reached the headlines for tagging the Hermes, Louis Vuitton and, most recently, Marc Jacobs stores, causing a lot of debate about whether this was art, mindless vandalism, or even the brand themselves paying Kidult to do it to gain press. Speaking about what he does, Kidult said:

"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."
