HOUSTON, TX – Uriel landeros, the 22-year-old man accused of tagging a Picasso painting at the Menil Collection last summer, is in the spotlight again. But not in the way you’d think.

He’s getting a nod from James Perez, owner of Cueto James Art Gallery in Houston.

Perez has given Landeros his own show, aptly titled “Houston, We Have A Problem.” Yea, no kidding.

Perez says he was inspired by the Landeros’ gesture because he took something and made it his own.

Here at NewsFix, we just call that being a jerk!

The show opens this Friday, but one person that will be missing: Landeros. He’s allegedly holed up in Mexico. He should be. He’s facing felony graffiti and felony criminal mischief charges, which means a possible 2-10 year prison sentence and a $10,000 fine if convicted.

Hope Landeros isn’t partial to the paintings in this show. He’s opened the stage to people ‘Landeros-ing’ his works of art.
