    GRAFFITI VANDAL HUNTED IN THREAT VS. QUEENS POL

    August 18, 2005 -- Cops are searching for a graffiti vandal suspected of threatening a Queens councilman, The Post has learned.
    Sources said a man identifying himself as Cope2, Fernando Carlo's tag name, called Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. and left a message filled with expletives and an ominous warning:

    "We don't live forever."

    The message also said, "I don't care, send the cops."

    "This comes with the territory," Vallone said.

    "Anyone who would destroy property is a criminal, not an artist."

    Police sources said cops are trying to confirm whether Carlos, who has been arrested 10 times for harassment and once for assault, was the person who made the call.

    Vallone has been vocal in trying to stop Marc Ecko Enterprises from holding a block party in Chelsea this month. It would include 10 replica subway cars that graffiti writers, including Carlo, would paint.

    Carlo was once paid $20,000 by Time magazine to paint graffiti on a billboard ad. Stephanie Gaskell

    20G's to do that Time billboard??!! WOW!!!!!

    I guess he didn't get paid as much money because that councilman got them to take those fake trains down. If that's the case, I'd be pissed, too.

    So I'm assuming they're trying to arrest him for use of a tacky-ass cliche in the presence of a government employee? Because "we don't live forever" sounds like a pretty lame ass threat to be hunting someone down for...

    He did his piece, which is absoultely ginormous (if people cant tell), then realized he had all this extra space. Made some calls and people really couldn't resist to come out and do spots on it.

    He also painted 3 of those all with just krylon, exactly the same on each one, thus explaining the "its not so good" He didn't probably feel like having to paint a piece that normally takes 4 hours, 10 times bigger, 3 more times EXACTLY the same.
