Mario Ybarra Jr. Girl in Buffet 2013
This will be on billboards along the 10, from California to Florida, beginning the end of the month for the Manifest Destiny Billboard Project. Can’t wait to see them in the wild!
John Stanley Untitled (After Richard Prince)
Interesting project about appropriation:
I would like to take my photograph of Richard Prince’s Untitled Cowboy and print it on at least one billboard in Los Angeles. Reclaiming the image and publishing it in an advertising format without any advertising goals will bring the image full circle Ad to Art to Ad Art.
I also believe that the printing of this famous image in some of the high art capitols will highlight the absurdity of older concepts of art and ownership in an age of digital reproduction. - John Stanley
