The problem with wall painting is you can’t take your work with you. So you eventually have no control over what happens to your art—whether authorities restore the wall to its original appearance or some pseudo-artist paints over your mural with some lame message like, “Archie & Patty 4ever!”
So Futura Laboratories gives us an alternative: graffiti-inspired bags. Think about it, more people will see your own version of self-expression because you can take it with you to the common places like libraries, schools, work places, and even police stations (without getting apprehended). Being able to guard it from actual vandals with no real vision except messing up a perfectly good wall is also a big plus!
Just in case you don’t have the artistic chutzpah to make your own graffiti bags, you can grab one of these beauties designed by Japanese artist Futura 2000. At the very least, you can use it as storage for your spray cans and other graffiti paraphernalia just in case you finally decide to take the plunge and actually find some metropolitan wall you can truly call your own. -RAYRAE
