Kendall Jenner’s face attacked by a drone
Nirapad News : Kendall Jenner is the latest victim of new technology this week after a New York graffiti artist used a drone to draw all over her Calvin Klein billboard in Manhattan.
On Wednesday night a graffiti artist who goes by the name KATSU used a DJI Phantom drone to spray red lines all over Jenner’s face.
The advert is six stories tall and would be nearly impossible for a person to reach even by climbing – and it couldn’t be done quickly enough to evade police.
Graffiti is illegal and a drone also helps to protect the artist’s identity.
‘It was a bit tense,’ KATSU told Wired about the stunt that the billboard company eventually caught wind of.
On Friday morning a Dailymail.com reporter saw workers replacing the damaged billboard with a new Kendall Jenner for Calvin Klein advertisement in its stead.
Wired reports that a year ago KATSU got recognition when he demonstrated that he had figured out how to attach a spray can to a drone.
This year he took his idea to the next level by putting it into action.
‘It turned out surprisingly well,’ KATSU told Wired magazine.
‘It’s exciting to see its first potential use as a device for vandalism.’
KATSU believes that drones may be the next tool artists use to express themselves.
KATSU doesn’t only work with technology, sometimes he works with his hands in order to protest technological advancements.
In January, Brooklyn-based artist KATSU used his own feces to create a likeness of the Facebook CEO mark Zuckerbeug which was on display at The Hole gallery in New York.
This is not the first time KATSU has hit out at Zuckerberg using his art, and has often criticized the way Facebook uses personal data.
