HE DECAPITATO

The Decapitator is fairly new in the world of street art. His style is abrasive and in your face, with his signature being literally decapitating people in street advertisements.

While his identity is unknown, he has been working diligently to make his mark as a street artist. He replaces the heads of printed advertisements by wheat pasting the altered version, which are generally bloody stumps. If there are multiple people in the advertisement he targets, he will often play off of them to create a very convincing composition- he alters the faces of the others in the photo to look as if they are reacting to the dismembered head, and are generally covered in gore themselves.
