Art or Vandalism?


A deviant artist nicknamed ULiveandYouBurn turned roadside traffic safety barrels into monsters and alligators, but is it art or vandalism?

Sometimes there’s a fine line between art and vandalism. Blurring that line is Raleigh, North Carolina-based ULiveandYouBurn (nickname used to protect his identity). Part Urban Explorer, part fine-art photographer and social critic, ULiveandYouBurn is constantly pushing the boundaries of acceptable art.

As an Urban Explorer, he’s traveled into many closed-off areas including construction sites, abandoned buildings, and mine shafts, and he’s climbed his share of dizzying construction cranes.

They forgot "Part douchebag", which is weird, considering that's the biggest part.

He should do like Banksy: get permission to do something and only pretend it's vandalism.

According to our local paper (I live in Raleigh near NCSU) Joe Carnevale has offered to pay for the traffic barrels, which belonged to a contractor working on Hillsborough Street. If that's the case I really don't see any reason to waste time and money prosecuting him.

why is it that I've been living in Raleigh, NC for the last 14 years and I've NEVER heard of this guy? I'd love to see some of his/her work.
