WALL BASED SABOTAGE – HEAVY ARTILLERY PAINT BEASTIE BOYS’ MCA GRAFF TRIBUTE

Like many other people who have grown up with the sounds of the Beastie Boys in their ears and used them as an entry point into a biorader appreciation for Hip Hop, I was gutted when I heard MCA (Adam Yauch) died the other week.

Whilst many tribute pieces were slapped up on social media fairly rapidly and all the news channels covered it to a lesser or greated extent, no doubt the best tributre to the man I have come accross so far is a piece of Graffiti in good old Brighton Town painted by the Heavy Artillery Graffiti crew.

Spanning the length of a wall just off London Road (round the corner in fact from an array of other great paintings) it lies in wait.  I had heard rumours of something being done around that part of town, so paid a visit the other day and was blown away by how good it is. They say a picture (or painting) speaks a thousand words, so here are a few snaps of it in all its glory (well, see it in the flesh for its true glory!)

The other great tribute to emerge is of course the re-working of the Sabotage video acted out by a bunch of kids.  Video maker James Winters directed the tribute and it is a little bit special:
