Orticanoodles is the work of Alita and Wally, a pair of Italian graffiti artists who produce some truly amazing stencils through which they generate pop art influenced images that decorate urban walls, skate half-pipes and canvases. I was hoping to purchase one of their works but alas they are a little out of my price range. It would be great to see them produce a set of silkscreens based on their stencil work, I might be able to afford one of those.

    Since when did Nazism become pop again? Hitler on a poster for promotion, yeah that’s something to curate. Removing changethethought from my RSS feed, check. Unfollow changethethought from my twitter account, check. Best of luck!

    Lazlo, we apologize for the offense this image may have caused and hopefully people are aware that we in no way support what Hitler represents. We just found the mixture of the image along with the symbolism implied by the U.S. flag and imperialism to make for a fascinating piece of pop art. We’ve considered replacing this image with Ortican Noodles Andy Warhol print but this image will already be permanent in Google Reader since it’s been posted.

    Sometimes the content on the site definitely has the possibility to offend people but we realize this is a particularly offensive image and we apologize for the upset. Our audience is of the utmost importance to us but sometimes we just can’t please everybody. Thanks so much for expressing your feelings and leaving a comment.
