shopped bilboards

this is pure brilliance, a group of german (i think) street artists, by the names of epoxy, mr talion, baveux & kone, have taken it upon themselves to give a bilboard on the subway a little extra.


at first glance, from a distance there doesnt seem to be that much different with this bilboard than thousands of others round the world, but take a closer look.


these artists have added a photoshop interface to the images, perhaps as a social commentary showcasing the effects that are put onto the glossy celebrity images to make people "beautiful", in an age where so much seems to focus on looks and style, this is a much needed breath of fresh air. i just wish the original image would have been on the history / layers panel so we could see the difference.


along the same lines and done by the same group, are these bilboards, where the interface from the original doom game has been added, as a tribute to id softwares classic game.


as alway click on the images to embiggen
