Fashion vs Street Art: Marc Jacobs and Kidult face off
In fact many graffiti artists have become well known and graffiti is now seen as art, especially since Banksy became a household name.
After painting the Marc Jacobs store, Kidult turned to Twitter to brag about his latest work, tweeting "I did some art?".
The Marc Jacobs team responded in an unpredictable way by pasting the work as 'Art by Art Jacobs' on Instagram.
This was quickly followed up with the images being printed onto t-shirts to be sold by Marc Jacobs in the store for $680 a pop!
Whether you view it as a clever way to monopolise on vandalism or as an insult by copying and selling Kidult's work, one thing is definite, the publicity isn't too bad for either party.
