Pray for Pills + Genghis

The stencil is the massage. Here’s another one of those stenciled catchphrases you see around lower Manhattan. These slogans are sometimes ironic plays on words, tweaks of well-worn idioms, and sometimes stabs at political commentary. “Pray for Pills” is one of the more ominous and darkly comic turns at street-art as anonymous propaganda. We have absolutely no idea who the artist behind these stencil messages is. (Anybody know? Drop us a line). This example is comfortably spray-painted onto a wall near where another Genghis plaque has been put up, this time with an orange background.
