Street artist Kidult has a long history of vandalism. For his latest statement piece, he has taken to Balenciaga‘s Parisian flagship to deliver a holiday-inspired message with a tag that reads “Merry Crisis.”
Kidult revealed the new graffiti via his Instagram page, captioning the post, “WISHING TO THE 🌍 A MERRY CRISIS. more lucidity and Humanity. Less Hypocrisy and Ignorance.”
This latest act of vandalism arrives as Balenciaga previously utilized Kidult’s graffiti-style artwork on one of its handbags. The design is highlighted in the artist’s aforementioned Instagram post.
Again, this isn’t the first time Kidult has sent a message to a high fashion label. In the past, he has tagged the storefronts of Céline, Marc Jacobs, and A.P.C., just to name a few. Furthermore, in 2016, the graffiti artist plastered photos of Donald Trump wearing Supreme in major cities across the globe.
