Whoever is putting up the Scientology posters keeps going over Morley, and we think it is not cool.
There was plenty of space to get up at this spot, but the Scientology posters went up right over Morley's. And, it was done purposefully to cover all of Morley's art, but not his name.
Morley has said that this is a battle that he doesn't want a part of, and yet the posters keep going after him. Morley has seen a lot of success this past year, and maybe its a simple as folks hating on the goodness he has a achieved.
The poster in the middle also seems to reveal that this is campaign is probably making fun of Scientology. Still, the whole purpose is puzzling. Posters cost money, and it adds up. This little compilation would probably cost around $35-40 to print at retail outlets--and there are a lot more posters around the city. M&F is all for supporting those who want to poke fun at religion, but if that's what's happening, it could be more clear. And if it is taking place on the streets, it would be a lot more relevant if it didn't cap over other artists.
