Samuel Bayer's billboard altered by Phil Frost stolenStreet Art // Tuesday, 12 Mar 2013
A billboard in Los Angeles that was “defaced” by the always-awesome art of Phil Frost was stolen last night and were we surprised? Not really. The fact that Frost is still out there putting in work on the streets is more amazing in our minds. The billboard promoting Samuel Bayer’s exhibition at Ace Gallery was not taken down when Frost painted it, most likely because they have good taste and respect for the artist. Samuel Bayer and Swing Media, the owners of the billboard, are offering a reward for the return of the work. If the thieves who stole it plant to keep it, better have a massive warehouse to properly display it.
