Drone Vandalizes Giant Kendall Jenner Billboard, Is Not Great at Graffiti

New, 1 comment

Graffiti artist KATSU enacted the first recorded instance of Drone Vandalism before dawn on Wednesday morning, attaching a can of red spray paint to a hacked Phantom drone and deploying some of that paint onto one of New York City's largest billboards, a Calvin Klein advertisement featuring Kendall Jenner. "It turned out surprisingly well," said KATSU, which is certainly true if that standards of "surprisingly well" are that some of that paint that was in the can is now on Jenner's face. Still, since this is only the first instance of drone graffiti—effectively, a drone graffiti cave drawing—it's only fair to assume that the techniques will improve over time, eventually progressing to a point where artists can write actual words on Calvin Klein ads and possibly even draw devil horns on the models.
