Gary Coleman Street Art is Painted with Diff'rent Strokes
Gary Coleman was best known as the cute and cuddly Arnold Jackson on the TV sitcom Diff’rent Strokes. Although he passed away in May 2010, his pop culture image lives on thanks to this Italian artist.
Simply known as Zibe Tso, the artist, who is a self-proclaimed vandal, has painted numerous images of Gary Coleman throughout the streets of Italy. You can spot giant images of Gary’s smiling face spray painted on the side of buildings and on the ground. They even come in a variety of colors, from classic black and white to psychedelic hot pink.
Zibe is also putting his own “different strokes” of Gary’s painted image on canvasses like cars, hats and greeting cards. Now that’s the work of a true Gary Coleman fan.
