street smART: HOTTEA string theories
Finally, HOTTEA string tags a telephone pole which makes it easy to photograph. I've photographed his work for over a year, but the string on chain-link fences doesn't show up very well. I've been photographing telephone poles anyway - because I love the mass of nails and staples and left-over posters.
My sticker-artist friend and I like to speculate on what HOTTEA stands for.
My Theory: a round-about way to spell HAUGHTY
Her Theory: he goes by the nickname T - and tags as HOT T(EA) - because she's seen him doing his thing - and he is a hottie :)
General Theory: he doesn't give a fuck about how we interpret his tags.
