The wiki entry on Albuquerque appears to be missing a mention of the Church of Beethoven in its arts and culture section, but I've no idea how to fix it.

Rainbow guy is not exactly Bansky but pretty good for Albuquerque.

I would recommend that all the rainbow haters go and read the interview in the Alibi. Might just make you think outside of the law-and-order box.

I actually like his art and his rainbows. I dislike that he chose to showcase his art on properties that are not his nor where he had been authorized to display his art. I am sure there are many property owners around town that will allow him to perform his art (Adelita?).

You all and the Alibi are fixated on the property on Central that is now abandoned. Well, what about the other private properties that are not? I seem to remember reading somewhere that he did it on a building where there is a Sandwich shop. How did they feel about their property and business being targeted without their consent.

I remember seeing somewhere in the fringecrest group about quincy st being tagged. Well, that is those persons art but of course since it is their hood they are not fine with it.

It's so interesting how a bit o' rainbow paint gets people all worked up and bent out of shape, isn't it?

@OBTS - who is all worked up? Some have a different opinion then yours and you probably have commented on this subject more than anyone else.

@Jeff - I agree, my house is stuccoed a greenish color and the stuccoed block walls are a deep burgundy red to match to Spanish tile roof, as well as my front door and a few other accents. Though it is not my decision what other property owners due with their properties.

I admit to liking the images this kid put up, but regardless I say he should be responsible for cleaning them off the building as part of his community service. Not painting over, not covering up, but sanding them off and returning the building to its previous state. It's not up to him (or to me or to you) to deface or to decorate property he doesn't own. I'm all for art, but regardless of his intentions, regardless of how cool it might or might not be, that's not art. That's graffiti pure and simple. It's no better than all the tagger-crap that has infected property from one end of the country to the other. After reading the Alibi interview I have even less respect for him cause instead of manning up and admitting or even understanding what he did was wrong, he complains and tries to justify it. He needs to take his punishment and learn the lesson. Maybe then he can approach some property owners and propose an artwork for them. Heck, he could even try to make a living doing just that. Then I'll show him some respect and maybe consider him an artist. Otherwise he's just another stupid kid with delusions of his own importance. As for Banksy, he is the epitome of self-aggrandized tagger simpletons. Any alleged message he might be trying to get across is lost in the static of his own desperate need for attention. I'll take any work from a first-year student trying to learn their craft and grow their own art over the most 'sophisticated' piece that hack has to offer. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate him I just have no respect for him.

I love rainbows on private or public buildings! if there are any artists sympathetic to Ernest/Nese's cause, please design a shirt, with the proceeds to benefit his legal fund and I will buy some!
