This past weekend, the subway ad modifying artist known as Poster Boy unveiled his first solo exhibit at Eastern District in Brooklyn. The show basically consisted of a massive cut up Dunkin’ Donuts vinyl billboard that was stretched across the main wall. Unfortunately, like many street artists before him trying to make that transition from the streets into a gallery setting, the concept just doesn’t come off as interesting when taken out of its illegal element and it becomes a softer, less edgier version of his unsanctioned work. But we can’t knock everything from the show, the exterior sign is brilliant (after the jump) and we’ll still be on the lookout for what happens below the streets.
