A few years ago, Pobrecito was San Francisco’s most prolific graffiti artist.
Sometimes, he just wrote his name. More often, he put up stickers like the one above: a hand-drawn face, with a short caption. He was on Facebook for a while, but dropped off, which may be a prudent legal strategy.
Then, he stopped putting up stickers. The only Pobrecito stickers I spotted were old and faded, like the one above. Who knows what happened, could be law school, a new baby, incarceration, boredom.
Pobrecito means ‘little poor boy’.
Recently, some new stickers were spotted.
Rock on, Pobrecito.
