BILLI KID was at the DIFFA expo on Pier 92 this past week-end. Billi is probably the most talented of the street artists in New York.
To attract attention to those most at risk of contracting AIDS, Billi has invited 22 street artists to paint a RED TRAFFIC STOP SIGNS as part of a campaign to make young pople aware that HIV/AIDS still exists and that wearing a CONDOM can prevent it.
