Plastic Jesus Gets Stolen!

Plastic Jesus opened his 'LA Art Show' last night, but it seems someone wanted a piece without purchasing it.  Last night, someone stole a street panel that Plastic Jesus has been using as an ongoing canvas.

Is taking art from the streets okay or wrong?  Either way, does it seem more wrong when the art is stolen from the streets the same night that the artist has an art show?

Click the jump to check out the panel before it went missing.

Here is the art that was on the panel at the time it got taken.  Featuring a homeless themed piece from Plastic Jesus, which the artist says is an issue he wants to bring awareness to.  You can check out M&F's post on the original piece HERE.

  1. Sounds like a publicity stunt to me.
