City What a Hoot

The 36-year-old artist , who asked not to be identified, says he never thought his work would get such a huge response. “I didnít expect that hooters thing to get to the gay community,” he says. “That wasnít the first thing I put up there [but] no one really noticed the other ones. [Clearly] people needed to be able to voice their opinions about what theyíre afraid of in the neighborhood.”
The Hooters sticker certainly got people talking. However, the artist says he never intended to freak people out. His other art, which you’ve probably seen around town, is a lot more benign.
The man says he intentionally targeted the brix development, and is considering tackling a few other developments around town, but he claims he’s not on a political crusade.
“I just want to make myself laugh, he says. “Iím looking at buying a condo pretty soon. Maybe itíll be at the brix, I donít know.”
