This is a video of an asshole spray-painting on Woman in a Red Armchair (1929) by Pablo Picasso at the Menil. According to the YouTube video, the asshole is named Uriel Landeros. Assuming this is true (and I acknowledge that it may not be true), this may be his Facebook page. You can read more at Glasstire and click2houston. Of course, this incident recalls the episode in 1974 when Tony Shafrazi spray-painted some nonsense onto Picasso's Guernica. Shafrazi is now a highly successful art dealer. Perhaps that is Landeros' ambition as well.
