A mysterious artist who goes by the name Gold Poo has been decorating dog shit in Bushwick for about a year now. (Um okay.) Now there’s a copycat dog poo artist out there, biting his style. As Dog Poo states on his instagram account, “Welcome To The Shit Show.”
Dogster has more:
According to the Huffington Post, Brooklyn has not one, but two poop artists, and a little bit of a turf war has developed between them. It started when the NYC blog Gothamist printed some pictures of a number of dog poops covered with glitter that had been spotted along Dekalb Avenue in Bushwick.
Longtime dog poop artist Gold Poo saw the pictures and called foul, claiming that the anonymous glitter-bomber was trying to ride on his coattails. “I was surprised at first,” he told HuffPo. “Seeing how I have been doing this for just under a year straight and have gotten little to no attention.” Apparently, all the cool kids are gilding poop these days. Or something.
But the lack of publicity hasn’t bothered Gold Poo, or as he calls himself, the “captain of this goldpoo train.” In fact, the recent press has prompted him to jump on poop art’s new attention for his own outreach purposes, even though Dixon’s Instagram is definitely not his work: Gold Poo uses spray paint, not glitter, and wasn’t working in the DeKalb Avenue area on the date Dixon snapped his photo.
