Fauxreel's Sandwich Board Installations

Street Art // Thursday, July 26, 2012
Dan Bergeron, aka Fauxreel, made a series of site-specific temporary sculptural installations utilizing the ubiquitous condo sandwich board advertisements found on street corners throughout the city of Toronto. “These works, installed along Parliament Street between St. Jamestown and Regent Park, playfully nod to the current state of affairs in Toronto's overheated condo and housing market, reference the plywood material that the sandwich boards are comprised of through the design and execution of the works, and also mash and rehash the existing ads to comment on the role of advertising in public space.”

Not the best or most detailed photos, however it give you an idea of the amount of work he has been creating there. Better photos real sooooon.

Hanksy's Bi-Curious George

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Hanksy, the notorious prankster who has been mocking up a variety of celebrity spoofs that range from his 'Ferrell Cats' to Bruce Willis murals such as the one wittily titled "Pie Hard", recently implemented a new work: 'Bi-Curious George', a figure that pokes at the ongoing questionings of George Clooney's sexuality (a claim that has confidently denied by Clooney himself). The open-minded monkey is even armed with a (very) suggestively shaped banana.

"Cod Is Great" by Steven Powers

Street Art // Tuesday, July 24, 2012
Steven Powers painted the phrase “Cod is Great” in close proximity to his other recent mural “Eternal Light and/or Eternal Night” in Vardø, Norway for Komafest. Both murals were painted on what looks to be docks for fisherman boats, which would explain the witty pun exchanging “Cod” for “God.”
