Scrawls deface most every advertisement in the New York City subway system. The crassly humorous New York Dick, Galen Smith documents one very specific trope: the addition of a penis to advertisement and PSA posters. Poster Boy has taken the street art world by storm. He has created more than 200 cut and slash mash-ups of NYC subway platform billboards, inviting comparisons to both Matisse and Banksy. Poster Boy: The War of Art is Poster Boy’s own account of his work, featuring before and after photographs. Celebrate NYC culture jammers with this New York Graffiti duo.
