Bridging the Gap

Posters. June 2008 Ajr
I was out photographing street art and graffiti this morning when I came upon these posters by one of New Zealand's leading artists, Philip Trusttum. Produced as part of his current series "All What Trucks" that also includes billboards, a gallery exhibition and a film clip, the posters are pasted underneath one of the city bridges and have merged seamlessly with the graffiti and street art that has been scrawled around them. They look quite at home and I love the irony of one of our most esteemed artists 'exhibiting' with generally-scorned street artists.
