Hollywood Graffiti- icons in spray paint

We went to the Arclight cinema in Hollywood the other day and saw the cool art the have. This time they have some cool multi-media art by Greg Auerbach. He took vintage newspapers and cut out articles that are related to certain movie stars or directors. He puts them together like a collage and then spray paints a stencil of famous film icons. For example, James Dean is spray painted over vintage newspaper clippings of ' rebellious, troubled, disenfranchised, and marginalized youth, car racing, the road game of chicken, and his life.' I put a close up of that one here. He also made one of Marilyn Monroe made with articles of 'tragic beauties, sex symbols, her marriages and blonde bombshells.' There was even a Clint Eastwood one with articles about ' the antihero, damnation, salvation, morality, the loner, redemption, cowboys and revenge.' It was amazing, but I don't think I'd have the heart to cut up a vintage newspaper!
