Farewell To The Geisha

Recently street artist 2:12 put up this Geisha sign in Houston but sadly now it’s gone.  It was lifted apparently by the person who added the rose, which wasn’t originally on the piece.  On the blog site tx2twelve 2:12 posted this message:

“Passed down Westheimer today and found that a rose had been left on the Geisha sign. I posted the photo to Flickr and a couple hours later got this comment: (by) true short stories said: i put the rose there.then i went back the next day and took the sign.if you give a fuck let me know,ill do something about it.props by the way.

Street art is fair game in my opinion, when you add something to a public space it can be easily taken away.  That’s what makes street art priceless and unique you’re displaying art in an unconventional way in an unpredictable environment.

But who knew Flickr users that walk around with roses were so grimy?  I did.

Never trust people on flickr. The More You Know

After the jump check out the creation of “The Geisha”.
