Creating a commercial entity. Creating a film, dare I say a movie, a documentary that the premise is “Using street art as a weapon for peace…” Where said documentary filmmaker never contacts the founder of An International Art movement that has existed for over 4 years, with supporters worldwide, featured in countless magazines wearing the logo for said movement,. speaking at high Schools, mentoring youth, visiting nursing homes, USING ART AS A WEAPON not only to fight for PEACE, but TO EDUCATE, INSPIRE, AND TO GIVE BACK TO HIS COMMUNITY… some might call that, ummm lazy research.
When said film whose premise, seems to mimic the Life Story of a certain New York Street Artist that everybody except them seems to know about, and call their film project Art As A Weapon, and their logo a dripping assault rifle and the ART IS MY WEAPON Dripping asuualt weapon…well..

“Art as a weapon” will look at the connection between street Art, Buddhism and the struggle for Democracy by using the closed country of Burma as a case study. The film will follow a Buddhist monk poet who’s building a library, artist Shepard Fairey painting a 30′ tall mural, and a elementary school art class learning how to use spray paint- giving the audience a peek into the the lives of artists and how art has the power to move people. Interviews include Shepard Fairey and Nobel peace prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi.
