opinions on guerrilla artwork and it's effectiveness. anyone seen any interesting animal rights related work before? there use to be a bunch of it where i went to school (not animal rights related), but i was wondering how something that was making a statement of any kind regarding slaughterhouses or consumption of animals might fly.<br><br><br><br>
anyone responsible for any of it?

I don't know any animal rights-specific graffiti, but there is some amazing political art by Banksy around London and Southern England. Check out his <a href="http://www.banksy.co.uk/" target="_blank">website</a>.

There is a Los Angeles-based artist named <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robbie_Conal" target="_blank">Robbie Conal</a> who was especially active in the 1980's and early 1990's with his guerrilla art. It was all political, but no AR messages AFAIK. I haven't seen any kind of AR-related guerrilla art around the Los Angeles area. That doesn't mean there isn't any, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">

what kind of reaction do you think people would have to AR related works? would it be received the same way as politically charged messages?

Oh, absolutely. Robbie Conal's work has always been antiestablishment, especially when that establishment is very conservative. I remember I'd read some angry, negative responses from the public in the newspaper regarding his posters being put up all over Los Angeles. These letters would say things like "why doesn't he hang his art in the museum instead of plastering it all over the city?" I interpreted that to mean "let's get it out of the view of the public and inside a building somewhere where a lot fewer people will see it". So yeah, AR guerrilla art would certainly elicit a lot of the same angry, negative responses, especially since it would address something very personal to a LOT of people - their food.

Google "Wooster Collective" it is a great site that has all sorts of street art including gorilla stuff, I spend hours on it. Sorry about no link but I haven't posted enough to be given the pleasure.
