A good way for a failing artist to lessen their insecurities and justify the cost of art school is to vandalise the work of an established artist who could sell a used napkin for the cost of art school. During the recent Jeff Koons retrospective at the Whitney, New York, a young boheme spray-painted some illegible scrawl over the gallery's wall.
New York Times identified the man as Christopher Johnson who, at 33, should probably put the paint down and resign himself to a desk. Luckily, a gallery-goer caught the whole thing on video, including Johnson's accomplished strut following the act. Now that's a gait that screams, 'I JUST DROPPED THE HOTTEST MANIFESTO ON THE BLOCK.'
Johnson was arrested and will face a number of charges. Good luck to him.
