Who is Alec Monopoly?

Odds are if you have been around Los Angeles, you've seen his work. Among the entertainment capital's omnipresent billboards and bus ads for the latest studio mush, little deposits of his artwork spring out of the urban marketplace like willful foliage to wink at you on your commute. Some call it vandalism, some are incapable of even seeing it, and some will pay hundreds for an original.

This video, a clip from the forthcoming film PAY 2 PLAY, shows Monopoly hitting the streets of Los Angeles at night, targeting a working oil rig and Clear Channel billboard advertising a Disney film.
