The Great Artists Of The Defacement Movement 3

Possibly by the same anonymous artist behind “This Is Hard To Blow”, “You Dumb Shits” represents a pinnacle of the Defacement Movement. Unlike the many examples, this one shows a clear deliberation in its creation as evidenced  by the lack of any eraser marks or double coverage. Also of note is the perfect, balanced use of two exclamation points. It’s easy to see why this is so widely known as a classic.
