Graffiti takes many forms in the Alberta Arts District often blurring the line between vandalism and art. Sidewalk graffiti is a different genre of neighborhood graffiti than the usual hieroglyphic tags, and guerrilla art. A few years ago, vegan vandals were defacing just about every sidewalk corner with “meat is murder” slogans. The campaign was effective in that it made me want to continue to eat meat just to mentally say “suck-it” to the vegan vandals.

STEPDAD appears to be a band. It also looks like the type of band that would end up with it’s name semi-permanently engraved on an Alberta Street sidewalk. Lots of facial hair and dripping with ironic synth-pop.
