Urban Prankster spotlights artist Mitchell Heinrich who is playing around with “smell graffiti” in Vienna. Spray bottle + scent + urban environment is pretty much all you need to know.
Mr. Heinrich’s claim of creating “a new form of street art” generates some flack from commenters. True, he is a bit pretentious. At my high school, at least, the kids with the stink bombs didn’t style themselves as artists.
Then there’s this:
As part of this project I’ve been sourcing natural scents like dirt and freshly cut grass and spraying them in urbanized public spaces where these scents are never encountered.C’mon, Mitch. Enough with the eco-piety. Are you a graffiti artist or Glenda the Good Witch? Pour something subversive into your spray bottle!
