Im letzten Jahr hat der Street Art Künstler Katsu eine Graffiti-Drohne entwickelt und in einem Studio gezeigt. Mitte der Woche hat er das Teil nun beim Sprühen in der Öffentlichkeit gefilmt – und zwar am größten und meist gesehenen Billboards New York Citys.
The Calvin Klein billboard, one of New York City’s largest, sits at the busy intersection of Houston St and Lafayette St. The graffiti drone’s potential for troublemaking on an unprecedentedly grand scale is obvious. The billboard is absolutely gigantic, about six stories tall. It would have been almost impossible to tag Jenner’s face using the traditional methods. One could rappel off the top of the building or use a cherry picker, but neither option is exactly safe, or subtle, or quick enough that one could do it without cops on regular patrol spotting it. With the drone, by contrast, it took less than a minute. Still, the artist admitted, “It was a bit tense.” (Needless to say, the stunt was extremely illegal).
