The iconic graffiti artist KATSU's Mark Zuckerberg posters have been put up within New York's lower Manhattan, Chelsea and Williamsburg neighborhoods. The social media icon is featured with a bruised eye and cracked teeth, a far cry from the pristine way in which he is most often depicted.
Titled Status Profile, KATSU aims to address the release of personal data through Facebook as well as the coming future. Given the beaten up nature of the posters, the artist has made the case for rife opposition towards Facebook and akin forums.
"With the internet being literally woven into the human experience I cannot stand by and not voice my discontent with those who plan on owning our lives," said KATSU via e-mail.
