Since we’ve been hitting the graffiti tip so hard this week, I thought it important to point out that not all illegal street art is done by and for young folks – why it can include the middle-aged talk radio audience!
This wheat paste poster was spotted yesterday afternoon on the 20th Avenue underpass near Coors Field. The subject of the work is longtime KHOW talk radio personality Peter Boyles, known for his opposition to “illegals,” and his anti-gang work. It appears the photo is an appropriated version of a Colorado Media Matters screen capture of Boyles in his former hosting Colorado Inside Out, a panel discussion show on Channel 12. How’s that for trickle-down media? –Jared Jacang Maher
