A brief History of the Star pig by NMG
In the summer of 2001 I created the star pig from an old drawing I did in ’97 for a poster titled “Need a Job?” This was one the first pieces of propaganda I made. As with a lot of my early work, it was about how cops are dirty pigs and cannot be trusted. The reasons why I started making propaganda are various. I was being confronted in art school regarding the reasons why I was there. I have always identified myself as a graffiti artist and my art as graffiti. The teachers correctly challenged me on the reasons why I was in art school. Simply put, you don’t learn graffiti in a class room or in art school (thank god). I started to look at what the school could do that the streets couldn’t. After a few years of dicking around (drunk off my ass), I started working on the computer and then did screen printing. I still felt very strongly that if I couldn’t put a piece of art out on street, it was not worth making the piece of art.
