Poster Boy “The War of Art!”

This weekend, Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art will launch the book in LA. The event includes book sales and a number of limited edition prints. No prizes for guessing the Carmichael’s thoughts on Poster Boy – proceeds from the sales will go to K.A.R.A.T.E., a new legal defense fund for street artists.
