"Conservative Government"


Artist: Chow Monstro.
For photo and interview of Chow Monstro, see Buffalo Foodies: Johny Chow (Stone Sour, Chow Monstro) (online Sept. 2014)

"It's tough to miss the work of Chow Monstro, one of Buffalo's more recognizable street artists. His trademark symbol – a skull with Mickey Mouse ears, often dripping black paint – has been popping up on buildings downtown and in Allentown for the past several years. Monstro's wheat-pastes and stickers can be found on gritty stretches of Allen Street, as well as on a wall that's slowly becoming a target for street artists on Exchange Street. One particularly striking example is on the south side of the former Club Diablo at 517 Washington St." - Colin Dabkowski, City Streets are Their Canvas.

"Picasso in Buffalo"


"Picasso in Buffalo"is a speculative title. 
Picasso depicted himself as a bull in some of his art.  Here the bull has been depicted as a buffalo.
