Punking the NYPD with fake drone ads
‘Essam’, a 29-year-old art school grad from Maine, who served in Iraq as a “geo-spatial analyst”, has put up posters like the one above all over New York. It shows drones being used to police regular people in an Orwellian world… with the NYPD logo plastered all over it, as if to endorse it. The NYPD wants him arrested, he wants to let people know the scariness of drones.
Animal New York scored an exclusive interview with the street artist who readily admits that he’s not really a part of the street art scene and it’s interesting to hear him describe his work.
He’s already put up over a hundred of these spoof drone ads and he’s done them under the very nose of the NYPD and has yet to be caught. Let’s hope it stays that way.
