Poster Boy’s New Book

July 10th, 2010 | By | 3 Comments »

On July 27, Poster Boy will release a retrospective of his work in a published book entitled, The War of Art. Known for his advertisement mash-ups in city subways and streets, Poster Boy’s book will feature an array of his work thus far. The book is broken into three parts including his ad alterations, collaborations and odes to other street artists, and exhibition work. I am personally really excited to see the sponsored MOMA ad campaign altered pieces that caused so much controversy in NYC subways on whether it was vandalism or not. Read a great review of the book here on Subway Art.

Poster Boy is still thought to be one person, but rumors circulate that it is actually a NYC collective, since his work still appeared after his arrest and sentencing.

  • I dont get it , how the hell you can make a retrospective show after working for only few years ? Retrospective is something when you look back at least 20-30 years back of work .

    Ha I know! that’s what I thought too. But Poster Boy supposedly makes fun of himself/themselves in the intro to the book about it being a so-called retrospective, and how hypocritical to publish such a book with a career in such a short time. So I guess he is aware of that. I haven’t seen the book myself though yet.

  • It’s a good book, Steph. I think you’ll like it!
