Bones In San Francisco


“I take photos of the homeless around the tenderloin neighborhood and then do graphite drawings of them, these are then wheat pasted onto walls all over the place from Bogota to Tel Aviv and Palestine to London this one is in San Francisco, i took this guys photo a couple of months before this piece and put it in the alley i often see him in. I did this piece during the day and coinceadently he saw me putting up the piece “ah man thats cool as shit”. about 15 minutes later im finishing the piece and 5 cops came upon me I spent the next 45 minutes explaining as to why not to arrest me.Piece stayed up in spite of the police , they went and asked the manager of the building if he wanted to press charges, ” nah man i like that just clean up my sidewalk” so i did. The subjects name is ” Bones ” he plays the harmonica.”
