Here’s well-preserved example of anonymous street artist WhIsBe’s Vandal Gummy series, for which he places an image of a Candy Gummy Bear against a Prison Mugshot Background. According to the artist’s Wiki page, “The juxtaposition between the harshness of the Department of Corrections and the innocence of the piece of candy encourages viewers to examine institutions and has become a hallmark of WhIsBe’s body of work.”

This very topical stencil graffiti/street art, “Guns Don’t Kill People, Selfies Do,” was spotted all over Soho, but specifically on Prince Street. The slogan, by tagger WhIsBe, has been around since the beginning of 2015, but this stencil is new, likely inspired by news stories like This One. Natural selection at work.
