KIDULT is known for his in-your-face graffiti, including art that trolls big-name fashion brands like Marc Jacobs and Chanel. For a recent piece in Paris, the artist joined the global discussion about the Ebola crisis by creating an ad for the virus in the style of the Coca-Cola logo, offering a social commentary by using the "Enjoy" and "Made in USA" taglines.
KIDULT also tweeted a few lines leading up to the reveal of the artwork:
Destroy the expected...— KIDULT (@therealkidult) October 6, 2014
Ebola, we made it ...— KIDULT (@therealkidult) October 7, 2014
Fight fire with fire...— KIDULT (@therealkidult) October 14, 2014
This piece is very different from fellow street artist Hanksy's Ebola joke that used rapper Eazy E and made reference to the origins of the virus in Africa.
