Summary

Dubbed by the New York Times as an "anti-consumerist Zorro with a razor blade, a sense of humor and a talent for collage," Poster Boy deftly rearranges the text and images of subway posters, reclaiming walls from the ad industry one slice of vinyl at a time. This artful and clever repurposing of advertising has been hailed by the Guardian UK as "witty, web-savvy and economical... the only materials it requires are chutzpah, imagination and a 50-cent blade," and, though the work exists only in New York City, Poster Boy has garnered a worldwide following.

Poster Boy: The War of Art is the first book to feature Poster Boy's renegade mashups-corporate copy slashed and re-pasted as sharp, playful puns and turns of phrase rich with innuendo and political punch. Under the edge of Poster Boy's blade, beautiful models turn ghastly and iconic spokespeople become mouthpieces for guerrilla slogans.

Poster Boy proves no ad is safe from art's incisive interventions.
