A wonderful conversation between street artist mobstr and the Newcastle City Council.
A mysterious street artist named TrustoCorp has placed street signs around Brooklyn, with messages ranging from silly to sophomoric. TrustoCorp also took his or her show on the road recently, posting signs around Los Angeles and Miami. A gallery of the signs can be viewed on TrustoCorp’s flickr page.
Posterchild did quite a few digital billboard alterations during his stay in New York last year (including one very special one), but this might be our favorite. The face is of Star Fox character Andross. Even if, like me, you have no idea who it is, it’s pretty damn cool looking!
I snapped the above photo in downtown Manhattan a month or so ago. There were several stone rectangles around the property that all looked similar. What a great example of the subconscious art of grafitti removal! If you are unfamiliar with the art form, see this short film from 2002 directed by Matt McCormick:
If you were a video game geek in the early 1990’s, this is probably up your alley. A quartet of street artists named Mr. Talion, Epoxy, Baveaux, and Kone have added the heads-up display from the first-person shooter computer game DOOM to a number of billboards throughout Berlin. You can see more here.
