Mantis in London

Mantis is a street artist I've come across that does a fair amount of work over public advertising structures. The work seems to often deal directly with the content of the advertisement as a sort of culture jamming exercise. The project shown is the only one I know of that seems to have erased the entire advertisement for another image. Regardless Mantis obviously sees the public advertising frame as an extension of his or her own messaging system and for that I am very excited. www.themantisproject.co.uk
