Trustocorp – Street Signs
Street art is art created in public places, often without permission. Using a number of mediums, including stencils, posters, paint, sticker and sculpture, it is a subset of graffiti. Street artists often go by aliases to protect their identity and to avoid prosecution. The artists, along with the movement have a dedicated following and street art can be found cities big and small, around the globe.
TrustoCorp seems to be new to street art scene. Their medium is clever street signs, that from a distance often look like your typical city supplied signs. The altered, hand painted signs usually carry a social message or just a lighthearted, sometimes vulgar one. TrustoCorp’s street signs have been spotted in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Miami…and they’re spreading fast.
Next time you’re strolling around a major city, pay closer attention to the street signage – you just might be amused at what you see. To check out more of TrustoCorp’s remixed street signs, visit their Flickr page.
