Fauxreel Under Fire for Vespa Scooter Ads

Dan Bergeron is part of a street art collective known as Fauxreel. Usually known for his edgy, provocative street art, he has recently come under scrutiny by his fans for doing guerrilla Vespa ads around the city.

These ads are simply people with scooter heads. While most people don’t even notice, these urban artworks cause many to feel that the artist has "sold out."

I think the ads are a testament to his solid work as an artist.
