ColdK is Lame

ColdK is Lame I was rather disappointed when I saw this faded ColdK ghost last weekend. It was on a brick wall of a beautiful old building on Capitol Hill, around 10th and Roy. I’m sure any more aggressive cleaning of the tag would begin to damage the brick. Some street art can be beautiful, but ColdK’s prolific ghost tags have long since become an eyesore around Seattle. I think there’s some distinction between tagging and street art, and it’s mostly subjective. Who’s to say what the intent is, except maybe the artist himself. Unfortunately, the defense and explanation of his work doesn’t exactly inspire. My advice? Exercise a bit more restraint and tact in your urban doodling. Some of the most memorable street art I’ve seen, I’ve only noticed once or twice in obscure locations, not necessarily dozens of times on everything including shop signage, garage doors, air conditioners, and windows. It sure is a lot of practice you’ve been doing, and so far I haven’t seen any improvement. Take it back to the sketchbook, please.
