The artist Banksy is also a fan of I-Heart. Bansky shared an image the mural in Stanley Park on his website and it went viral. With the work I-Heart wanted to show how connected but yet disconnected we are now thanks to the Internet and Smart Phones.

Below a brief interview with I-Heart:

I think Andy Warhol would be a huge fan of I-Heart for the way the artist incorporates mass social media in his work.
