Ever since Banksy's rise to fame and monetary success, people everywhere have been inspired to create socially provocative street art, stupidly missing the more obvious move: just tell people you're Banksy. For another artist doing it the hard way, check out the rad work of Nils Westergard.Introduced to paint sets and screen-printing kits in high school (...yeah, he probably went to private school), Nils, now a VCU arts grad, creates mixed media prints and paintings in the vein of Britain's most infamous tagger, claiming inspiration from things like \u201chip-hop" and "Carl Sagan\u201d -- the Lil Wayne of astronomy, in that he slayed mad bitches.
