Artist Insists He Can Deface “No Parking” Sign Because He's a Taxpayer

Art doesn't always have to look nice, it just has to move you.

If that's the case, we'll argue that the photo on the right is art. Of course, the local police will have a much different take, as one San Francisco “artist” learned.

Sometime before midnight on Tuesday, a 22-year-old San Francisco man was busted vandalizing a No Parking sign in the Western Addition, using a marker.

When a police officer asked him what the hell he thought he was doing, the painter claimed he had every right to deface the sign, considering as a taxpayer, he owned it.

Well, he has a point?
