Art mystery apparently solved

This is one mystery we slightly, wistfully wish could have stayed unsolved … but the genie’s out of the bottle. Dan from Seattlest dropped in, two posts down, earlier this morning, to say the bear, the owl (the Grouchos too? they don’t seem to fit the theme), and much more, are the work of “No Touching Ground.” Watch the video linked to the name; there’s no doubt. The video doesn’t match a real-life name to the artist but a little rummaging around the web comes up with it. (And he’s got a show up at a Pioneer Square coffeehouse right now.)

    You know, after posting that comment I thought I detected a distinct aftertaste of spoiled fun. Apologies for that.

    yo dan,
    in my view the spoiled fun (which i definitely feel) is balanced by being in on the joke.

    seeing quality guerilla art in public is like spotting rare wildlife. kudos to NTG.

    Not in West Seattle, but my all-time favorite guerilla art was when the monolith mysteriously appeared at the top of a hill in Magnuson Park (NE Seattle) on New Year’s day, 2001. That was genius.

Sorry, comment time is over.
