NYC Street AD Takeover //  delete

“New York Street Advertising Takeover” is a street art movement which targets illegal outdoor advertisments. Jordan Seiler, the mastermind behind this movement wanted to take over hundreds of illegal and unregistered billboards around the city. Dozens of volunteers armed with white paint and rollers set out to whitewash over 100 billboards.

This is where it gets interesting. After the illegal billboards were whitewashed, over 80 artists transformed the spaces into personal canvases.
