Let's paint the town...


The other day I was walking home from the grocery store and I saw a blank billboard above one of our local cafes.  

I wondered, "What if artists could take over the billboards of London for one day? What would the city look like?" 

Sometimes I get tired of being forced to stare at advertising for phones, cars, musicians, movies and car insurance packages. I'd much rather wander down the street and stare at beautiful, inspired work by local artists. 

So, I came home and placed one of my own paintings on the billboard in photoshop.  

It's fun to dream, isn't it?

  2. Absolutely! What an awesome idea, and MUCH more preferable over advertising. I can't stand how advertising is everywhere these days.

  3. looks great! why not make it bigger and cover the half or whole building? I love seeing art this way. they should do that with classic paintings like van gogh's starry night or something dreamy.

    hope you have a sweet day.
