Propaganda War: Vew Takes on ISIS
New York City graffiti artist VEW GI has decided to take the battle against ISIS into his own hands. Yesterday, a video published by Ratter shows the artist painting a giant Star Wars themed mural that said “Fuck ISIS” with a Jawa wielding a lightsaber. Coincidentally, the station Vew painted in was also used last week in an NYPD counterterrorism exercise.
VEW told Ratter that he made the mural because “It’s a propaganda war and our side needs to step up its game.”
This isn’t the first time VEW has been in the news. Last winter, he was the one behind a large piece that read “NYPD KILLS” on the Manhattan bridge last year. To see more of VEW”s work check out this Metal Monday post.
