In July, Los Angeles-based Michael "Che" Romero dropped in the 18B between stops in Brooklyn and the Bay Area and left this in the Arts District. “Che-Man stems from a multitude of ideas and is a social commentary of what is happening throughout the world,” it says on the artist's website that also points out how Pac-Man is used for cultural familiarity, and each ghost is an ism of destruction and source of social riots; racism, imperialism, fascism and terrorism. His unpainted call-to-action plays off the initials: “Let’s unite and create a RIFT!” Che-Man
Judging by the shadows, Lost Vauge Us must have been at the same spot 24 hours before or after me.
