Splasher Suspect Arrested; Manifesto Appears at Another Fairey Show

splashifesto.jpg

The keen eyes of Spencer Cross spotted this story about the bust of the supposed Splasher (who was nabbed trying to stink up Shepard Fairey‘s show last week). Suspect James Cooper swears he didn’t do it, but two nights later, two people showed up to another Fairey event and distributed tabloids entitled “If we did it this is how it would’ve happened.” In it, they criticize Fairey, Swoon, Faile, Visual Resistance, and Marc and Sara Schiller at Wooster Collective, as well as claiming they were responsible for Banksy and Neckface splashings.

You can spend hours poring over the whole thing since the NY Times has posted the entire Splasher Manifesto online as PDFs, but after reading through most of it ourselves we’d recommend not wasting your time. Like most anonymous manifestos, it wanders, to say the least. And it’s just begging to be tacked up somewhere and splashed with paint.
