Fuck You, Free


One of Free Humanity's most iconic street art pieces is his Ballon Girl, which is an an adaption of Banksy's Balloon Girl (shown below) where Free replaced Banksy's original red heart balloon with a green dollar sign.  You can see Free's Balloon Girl HERE.

Well, Sprouts from the Life's 2 Boring crew just offered up his own interpretation of the Banksy piece. Sprouts' version features the same girl with no balloons, but a baseball bat in one hand while the other is outstretched and flipping the bird.

Sprouts put the piece right next to one of Free Humanity's Lotus Flowers on Melrose as a clear 'Fuck You'.

M&F does not know the back story to this street beef.  We imagine that some folks will have some things to say on the subject in the comments section . . .

  9. hahahaha you pussy ass anonymous fuckers! its so easy to make an account here. but none or you are brave or smart enough to make one to leave your names. get back to your online video games and boring lives. obviously none of you in here "read some books" so maybe you should educate yourselves...and whats this so called "beef" maybe you should look up the word "Detournement"

    Free im sure you heard the word before...

  10. This is sick but sprouts is still lame. For example, one of his stickers uses an Atlas cat on it. Stop trying to get known by other people's art. With that being said free humanity is still a bitch.

    1. Man you newer artist need to stop taking your name from Disney shows and choose something original or unique and not used up already. That sticker was made as a tribute to an artist i much respect and dig his style and get up. Socko? who? words mean nothing to me so no value or merit in this comment you just made. Learn some facts before you try to school somebody it just makes you look bad.

  14. "Detournement" towards FH's "Detournement" of a Banksy piece? Man, it's getting all Inception up in here. Beef is so boring.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Just goes to show idiocy hate and boobs are more popular than street art on a street art blog
    Sprouts you sound clueless and ignorant with your misuse of Detournement
    look up your definitions before you speak

    1. Poor FH everyone "hates" him.. maybe youd get some respect if you gave it or earned it. or maybe by doing things for others not just for yourself i mean come on isnt your name "FREE HUMANITY"? funny how i never cried anytime you covered me. and now you try to make me look like i am uneducated by saying i misused a word? Well seems to me you are the one who is clueless and now leaving ignorant comments. and next time you have something to say instead of sending me some silly incorrect grammar message on facebook or emailing a friend of mine to talk to me and ask me to stop. and if you can respond here respond to the message i sent back to you because only you and i know what was said and i know you know what i mean by that!

  16. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%A9tournement
    for the lazy... seems like detournement to me. Sprouts parodies Free Humanity's appropriation of Banksy's style and image, and his statement is using FH's image against him. Sounds like that definition above in the link.

    My sidebar, the bat hanging out of the dress looks like a well hung tranny... now that's keeping it Melrose!

  19. Always an answer to everything with this faggot-If he cant use his generic line of, "only cowards speak from behind the safety of the keyboard." -or-
    "they only hate because they have no talent of their own and their jealous."
    Please!
    Is he from OC for reals? LOL!!!HAHAHA!! It all makes sense now! Supertoy!

  22. Cmon FH!! Thats it???
    Bring it!!!!
    probably doesnt have a smart ass response ready yet.
    All the old lines have been used up and called out.
    Maybe he will just go back to the Hater Mcgee thing-
    The making up of anonymous people is a classic tactic of his as well.
    He SERIOUSLY has mental problems-not a slam- a true observation based on his consistent self righteous contradictions and passive aggresive manipulation, of which he is an amateur player, BTW. Keep proving us correct Free and RESPOND.
    We're waiting...should actually try and be clever for once. just try..please.

  23. This is where the comment section needs to start being monitored. It takes away from everything this site should be. It's turned into a 7th grade school yard fight instead of a respectable art site. Waking up at 9am to start fights is lame. Free I like your work but replying at all on here is hurting your image as a respectable artist. L2B crew your art is alright too in it's own way but what you're doing on the streets and on here shows how mature you guys are. M&F owner please stop all the comment drama. It's hurting the image of your site. I know I am not the only one who feels this way.

    1. IM sorry you feel this way and a lot of what you say is true. but your sarcastic comment is false. what happens on the streets does not reflect upon who any of my brothers or i are as people. if you truly knew us you would have never made such an accusation.

  24. This is going to be a great angle for my upcoming article on the artists of the Los Angeles street art scene. Keep the fighting up, it makes for great drama.

    1. Seems like fighting and drama are the reasons the artists get up, to either cap someone or start a fight. What happened to doing it for arts-sake? Leave it to LA to have so much hate.

  25. I wonder if the city is pissed you guys capped their box, that was original constructivist art, now its ruined :(
