Advertisers and street artists swap tactics in Berlin

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. With no insurance and a possibly infected molar I signed over my right to my bottom left wisdom tooth last friday. 5 minutes later I was shaking hands with the "dentist" and then walking along 2nd avenue in Brooklyn with a numb cheek. 3 hours after that I was self medicating and have been in a large amount of pain ever since. I apologize.
I was recently contacted by Candice Novak to respond to questions regarding the intersection of street art and advertising. I'm always happy to give my opinions on this subject.
Something is not right with this iPad poster in a Berlin subway. Above the words "Easter Celebration," a topless blonde dons a risque bunny suit, legs spread wide. Above the label "Garden Party," there's a photo of two beetles mating on a leaf, then a couple doing the same on a bluff above the words "Hiking Trip." [More Here]
