Sean Woosley's Appropriated Poster Campaign

VIA Wooster Collective

Sean Woosley has the to say about a recent bus stop poster appropriation campaign he is working on.
Below is a series of appropriated posters that I painted over and reinstalled into bus stops. These are the first posters to hit the streets in an ongoing experimental campaign to raise cognitive awareness and more importantly to inspire benevolent action that we often forget, oversee, or might be in opposition to our often hedonistic culture. These first batch of posters can be found in Costa Mesa and Newport Beach. More to come. Many more.
It's always wonderful to see artists reclaiming public space, especially those message boards which have hijacked our shared spaces to promote private commercial concerns.[More Images Here]
