Internationally known, LA-based street artist, Saber, notorious for his legendary LA river piece, is using his fame to raise political art awareness. Saber has decided to fight against the conservative agenda using his own creative (legal) methods of getting people’s attention: sky writing. He explains his motive on his site by stating, “Mitt Romney has stated that he would eliminate funding for The National Endowment for the Arts, PBS, and NPR if elected. This extreme conservative has no appreciation for the arts or American culture, despite the fact that creative people are the backbone of this country. It’s time to fight back and prevent these publicly funded and uniquely American organizations from being eliminated. To do this, I’m going to use the same tactic [see video above] that I used last year, that successfully generated much press and attention in both the real and internet worlds: BY TAKING OVER THE SKIES.” We think this is a pretty cool and effective method of making a political statement in a non-voilent, creative way.
