Graffiti artist Saber--of the jumbly designs that decorate parts of the LA River--is skywriting above Downtown today in the name of artistic freedom. The Los Angeles Times reports that Saber has scrawled messages like "End Mural Moratorium" and "Art Is Not A Crime" to protest bureaucratic crackdowns on street art. Saber's buddy Shepard Fairey got a shoutout too, with a message of "OBEY" written in the blue sky. To get up to date on today's action, both Saber and Fairey are tweeting about today's skywriting. More photos over at LA Taco.
