Evan Roth is the biggest bad-ass motherfucker out there, or at least he tricked Google into thinking so. Try it for yourself. Search „bad-ass motherfucker“ and the search engine will present you with the American hacker artist’s website featuring his impressive public space and culture hacking stunts.


Evan is a leading figure in the hacker community creating work under the philosophies of the open source movement. He applies a hacker philosophy to an art practice that often involves technology, humor and activism. His notable pieces include L.A.S.E.R. Tag and LED Throwies (Graffiti Research Lab), White Glove Tracking, EyeWriter, Graffiti Analysis and a collaboration with Jay-Z on the first open source rap video.


Roth’s work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art NYC and has been exhibited widely in the Americas, Europe and Asia, including the Centre Pompidou, the Kunsthalle Wien, the Tate, the Fondation Cartier and the front page of Youtube.
