LOOK AWAY: The Art of Todd Francis

"Attempting to embrace the artwork of Todd Francis is akin to sailing your ship toward the song of the siren. Like most artists leveraging the loose category of "Street Art" to their benefit, Francis is a cheap, shiny gift to the doomed and vacuous, a fleeting beacon to the dull and easily entertained, and an artistic reference to those naive enough to cite the temporary, interchangeable walls of the skate shop as a viable source." - Some Critic
