Army of One

I have photographed Army Of One aka Jef Campion’s work before. In fact I’ve photographed this exact piece of his before in a different fashion! Last year in Freeman Alley, I photographed a wheatpaste of this Diane Arbus image and really loved it. Now, a larger, almost mounted version of this piece exists on Rivington just opposite Freeman Alley.

“only the dead have seen the end of war.”

“chalk before bullets.”

if you can’t tell, the kid is cupping grenades.

great work Jef! Love it!

  1. Thank you Lovely………….we are Humbled ,and only happy that it lasted long enuf for you to see it……………….

    DON’T BE MISLED BY FALSE PROPHETS….
    ONLY THE DEAD HAVE SEEN THE END TO WAR……….

    WELCOME TO THE REVOLUTION….

    HAVE YOU SEEN THIS CHILD?
    our factory is prepared for an assault on the senses every nite….. We search the
    streets for anything we can use for our art , our message, our destiny and our
    savior……….I am prepared to face authority and condemnation from the new
    world order,in order to save a child from the streets and ravages of poverty,
    disease and war, our images are a metaphor for pain and ignorance to a childs
    plight, the innocence lost, on political corruption, religious vagrants and
    corporate greed,Army of One may never end war , poverty nor disease thru our
    grass roots meanderings and art. But we will bring it to the forefront of
    American Disgrace…….this Cause i have dedicated my rebirth too…….We who run with
    the night……………We who are given the vision…………….
    We are responsible not to lay down with complacency and mediocrity…………….
    We are the new visionaries
    ……..
    Our path is clear……Army of One/jc2
    join us…………

    Thank you Diane Arbus , for your frightening and timely image and inspiring
    artists like us to topple the war machine , through our peaceful street art
    revolution ..
    WE ARE THE NEW PROPHETS, THE BLOOD OF THE NEW AND THE NEVER LASTING!!!!
