Graffiti mocking TBA on a Sherlock Holmes/OMSI ad.

As a person with a minor in Art History, I should gleefully embrace the Time-Based Arts Festival.  But I don’t.  The whole thing makes me hold my breath in annoyance.  It seem so damn pretentious.  I am, however, a huge fan of witty/pointed graffiti, so I was happy to see the following addition to this billboard.

TBA: THE VICTORY OF THEORY OVER CRAFT.

You tell them, graffiti artist.

  1. I grit my teeth in general over modern art. Most of it seems so pretentious and self-indulgent to me. TBA would probably leave me seething, so I too appreciate the witty graffiti. Leave it to Portland to have high-brow graffiti!
