Desire Obtain Cherish.
These guys are sick. They get up in crazy places, take over billboards, and are always up to something clever. Check ’em out.
Chicken can’t think as fast as DOC. Chicken would rather stroll through the park instead of take over billboards late at night or send a message to the establishment… Unless that establishment is KFC – because Colonel Sanders needs to go down. You fried your last chicken, Colonel! Who’s with me?!

This isn’t it. Can’t be.
Morley. Where the glass is always half full… now the contents of said glass are another question, but I digress…

Felix. One Cool Cat.
Chicken also learned not to mess with the Chupacabra… and suggests you do the same.
San Francisco Defenestration project. This furniture would be really good at playing hide & seek.

Too… Much… Good… Stuff… And then I get hit by a car leaving the garage. Totally worth it. Just a flesh wound.
Chicken digs Morley.
Morley puts up clever and light-hearted, but thought-provoking posters around town that make you take notice, think outside of the box, and hopefully not crash your car while getting lost in thought and driving at the same time. Fortunately for me, I don’t drive (can’t. no opposable thumbs).
To quote Morley’s own website, he is “a friendly voice amongst the cacophony of billboarded messages and corporate slogans.” Whereas I myself am just a voice… Is it not enough that I’m a talking chicken, I have to be thought-provoking, too?!
Retna is badass.
Chicken gets lost in thought staring at Retna’s work, what it all means, and comprehending things greater than himself. Chicken really doesn’t like to think about things greater than himself. It puts a lot of pressure on Chicken and his therapist says he should avoid such pressures. Chicken prefers to focus on simpler things like pie; apple, cherry, key lime… Yeah, Chicken likes pie. What were we talking about again?
Wrinkles of the City project in LA. As if people weren’t imposing enough already to a frail chicken like myself, JR goes and flyposts enormous, original black-and-white images over buildings across town. Trust me, nothing is scarier than waking up next to what you thought was an ordinary building only to be caught in the eyeline of a now 50-foot woman.
JR was once (mis)quoted as saying the street is the largest art gallery in the world. Well, JR, I live in said art gallery and some of us are trying to sleep. Please keep the noise down. Thank you.
Just another chicken telling it like it is.
Wrinkles of the City project. Massive scale, genuine black-and-white photographs blended within the cityscape that make each building come alive with intimacy, heart, and soul. Either that, or that guy has a really big head and he’s been waiting for the bus a very long time.
JR won the TED Award. I once met someone named Ted.
I don’t feel the need to explain my art to you… but can I have five dollars?
Stay up M&F! http://melroseandfairfax.blogspot.com/
Say what you will about Mr. Brainwash, but you can’t argue with Gandhi AND Einstein in the same piece… Well, you can, but you’d lose. Sans cheeseburger.
In this case, Banksy happened on a wall.
Good for you, Banksy.
Some sick pieces even if Free Humanity doesn’t include Chickens in its credo. The Chickens have to fight their own battles, I guess.
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana… Doesn’t change the fact that I live in a parking garage.
There used to be an Alec Monopoly there. Hanging strong. Chicken just passing through.
