Love me

I do. Saw this in the East Village and it really stood out (also saw it at some other spots in the city). It’s done by an artist called Curtis Kulig. I found a article about him online over at Fecal Face with some nice pictures and a quote:

LOVE ME is a take on graffiti. Graff is a selfish act where the writer wants to be seen whether people want to see it or not. LOVE ME is an honest expression of love but also a sarcastic “fuck you” to the haters. I’m sort of a hypocrite and I know it. I want to be seen and heard and loved. Oh well. Most tags are serious and the graff culture so hardcore, LOVE ME is ironic, and kinda pussy, that’s what I like about it, the pussy part. But it’s me, I’m a lover not a fighter. I go out and do shit, make it happen, and that’s what I do with LOVE ME. I just fuckin’ do it, and people seem to be down with it.” – Curtis
