On Sunday, October 25th, 2009, along with our good friends of Public Ad Campaign, Philip Lumbang from LA and Shai Dahan hit the NYC streets to help whitewash illegal advertising that are placed throughout the city by NPA Advertising.
From 10 a.m., Shai and Phil, along with a more than 50 other whitewashers in groups of twos took to the streets to take back public space from illegal advertising.
Below are a few images of Phil's and Shai's work. Unfortunately, NPA and the NYPD found out about the plan rather early and many locations were either re-pasted by NPA with new ads or artists were ticketed and/or arrested.
But, we here still see it as a success. New photos of other artists coming soon to new posts.
