Over the weekend, a mural on the side of A$AP Bari’s VLONE Art Basel Miami pop-up was desecrated with graffiti by a perpetrator(s) whose identity still remains unclear. The tag in question simply read “Revenge” in bright red spray paint, with Ian Connor (aka @ianconnorsrevenge on Instagram) initially singled out as a prime suspect.
Connor, however, has taken to Instagram to deny the claims; claiming he still has “Forever Love” for Bari.
Connor and Bari have been at odds for the past year and even came to blows at a VLONE event in Paris last the spring.
And more recently, the former Kanye West protege was critical of VLONE on Twitter; claiming the garms were printed on Gildan shirts.
Claims Bari refuted.
The Australian artist, Pauly Bonomelli, who created the mural has now returned it to its original state, with a stark warning for whoever debased it in the first place.
Let’s hope the two can patch up their differences before this beef gets any messier.
