After successfully taking on the world, Poster Boy is back with some Hip Hop inspired work and a profile in New York magazine. The anonymous subway ad remixing artist admits to being “arrested for a couple of little things” and sums up his illegal handiwork as “political,” “anti-media,” and “anti–established art world.” Apparently, he’s not looking to be a Banksy (yet) and unlike the infamous stenciler, Poster Boy doesn’t outsource his work or Photoshop stuff like those fake American Apparel ads. Instead, he often works on the mini-billboards onsite. In one of his latest modifications, the vandal channelled Mos Def, paying homage to the MC’s “New World Water” track (and our fascination with bottled water?) with this fitting alteration.
