Adam COST’s wheat pastes are ubiquitous in NYC, so it was a shock to everyone when the legendary graffiti artist was arrested by the NYPD last October. COST appeared in court earlier today to face charges, and allegeldly attempted to dodge photographers by hiding behind his lawyer and bowing his head.
While COST’s work is well known by many, the last time COST KRT’s picture has been published was back in 1995 after being charged with tagging a mailbox. Besides that incident, COST has managed to keep his face under the radar and was relatively unknown, even to many police officers.
The judge at the hearing estimated COST has caused millions of dollars in damage. He currently faces charges of mischief, graffiti, and more. (via)
