rosa sincerely asks: “Was it Jordan?”
Labron and Brito have hooked up. Check it out.
@Chris ha ha ha. I take no responsibility. Never mind the red flecks on my forearms. I killed a man last night. He was sticking up for Britto.
Malice is never good, and success is going to Beached’s head. Be careful you don’t get too glib for your britches. When the kids from the neighborhood tag the art in Wynwood, it’s bad. Brito’s work belongs on the golf course. Leave it be.
@CR Beached doesn’t have a head. Also, that’s a photo, not an endorsement. I think Britto is trash, but you won’t see me bombing his stuff. Flipping the bird, that’s a different story.
I wasn’t crazy about the Minelli Streisand question either.
@CR It was a real toughy.
Not the dot-stripe-dot-pi pattern! Fools!
I know nothing a about art. I do know one thing. Vandalism sucks.
@Salman Agreed, “vandalism sucks”, and a lot of people consider Britto’s omnipresence on the Miami landscape vandalism. Who decided this guy should define the Miami brand? On the other hand, defacing a possession resting squarely on private property — not cool.
I can’t make up my mind about this one, but I do know many a law-abiding Miamian smiles on this particular crime.
@ william, HAH! don’t get too hung up on the destruction of the dot-strip-dot-pi pattern. it can be lovingly viewed on his various balloons, hearts, butterflies, and unicorns; not just the amazing beachball.
I’m so sick of his so called art all over the place.
vandalism, who cares. When “art” work it outside in a public or private area there are consequences that it can be damaged either by the weather or by the people, it’s part of the art.
I’m not buying it, but a commenter over on Miamism is calling this a hate crime on account of Britto’s ethnicity (Hispanic) and (presumed?) homosexuality. I’m not completely sure he’s being sincere.
So happy to see this
i think britto got famous in miami by people that live in the city loving, celebrating, and actually BUYING his work. sure, he has endorsements. but so does dwayne wade. how do you think he bought his momma a new crib? i hope they catch whoever did this because now just more shores cops are gonna be rolling around and that’s the last thing we need.
YES!!! Vandalism sucks, but I must admit, he spoke for me. If we could just get the city and the Dolphins to take down all of these cheesy Britto-brand patters all over the city.
This piece is in front of a little kids’ waterpark. I think a colorful beachball is appropriate for this location. Even if you do not like Britto, that is pathetic. Let’s deface a kids’ park to show we have “real” taste in art!!! Nice job losers.
@Jordan Yes, it’s a hate crime. They hate him. And that’s hate I can get behind. Now if they would just decapitate that disgusting piece on I-95, maybe we could actually put some good Miami artists into public spaces, instead of the ones who know the magic of branding.
I don’t agree with destruction of someone elses artwork.. I don’t agree that Britto’s SHIT is not art.. I am tired of seeing his #CompleteSHIT everywhere.. There are many more commissioned/uncommisioned public artist worthy of some notice.. If you like where the “vandals” message/idea.. Checkout out #CompleteSHIT 8.13.2011 Wynwood
Damn android phone.. spelled my own damn name wrong up above. Vince Herrera.. Also known as King Bad Panda!
NOW it’s art
It’s about goddamn time that someone did this. Fuck Britto. I hope someone does this to every piece of art in public. He had this coming. He has a monopoly on Miami’s public art space.
At last someone had the guts to say that Brito is not art.
Update via Miamism: The beach ball got spiked again.
