Then he booted Michelangelo off of his proverbial scaffold and dropped a can of chunky-style whoop-ass on the venerated painter's head.

Typoe used spray paint, collage, and text to deliver his own hellish vision of life in paradise, where phrases like "snitches get stitches" and "robbin' niggas, selling drugs, stabbing fools" compete for attention with images of bolt cutters, leering gold-toothed skulls, and swaying palm trees that represent the mean streets of the 305.

He painted pubic hair on the Apostles and spackled gaudy lipstick on the Holy Mother's gob.

Typoe's take on Michelangelo's masterpiece.

Just as spectators experience street art in a blur while driving by it, Typoe forces viewers to crane their necks while walking under his sprawling opus pressing down overhead.

The artist has taken his appropriation of religious iconography to an unexpected level in this exhibit. The work is muscular, brash, and unrepentant, as telegraphed by the artist and his crew bragging "We run this shit" here.

Typoe is no Michelangelo, but saints alive — he is a bad, bad motherfucker who makes you wonder what Il Divino Buonarroti might have accomplished if armed with cans of spray paint.
