NO AD App Replaces Ads With Art


I’m super excited to have contributed a few images to free NO AD app from Re+Public (PublicAdCampaign + The Heavy Projects) and the Subway Art Blog. BTW, that’s me and my honey testing the app last week. 🙂 Using augmented reality technology, the app allows users to view curated digital art in place of ads within the NYC subway system. For the next month and a half, works by the following, illustrious group of artists will replace any of the 100 most widely circulating subway platform advertisements:

Adam Amengual – Amy Arbus – Beau Stanton – Caroline Caldwell – Dadi Dreucol – Dal East – Dan Bergeron – Daniel Jefferson – Dr. D – Elizabeth Winnel – Elle – El Tono – Faith 47 – Hugh Lippe – Ian Strange – Icy and Sot – Influenza – Jay Shells – Jeff Stark – Jilly Ballistic – John Fekner – Jon Burgerman – Jordan Seiler – Know Hope – Leon Reid IV – LNY – Logan Hicks – Luna Park – Mario Brotha – Michael Alan – Michael De Feo – Mobstr – Neko – Noxer – Nuria Mora – OX – Pedro Sega – Peter Fuss – Poster Boy – Remi Rough – Ron English – Rone – Saber – Sean Martindale – Sheryo – Skullphone – Stikman – Stormie Mills – Tara McPherson – Tod Seelie – Trap – Vermibus – WK Interact – Work Hard Be Nice

Much like the ads in the subway are constantly updated, the NO AD app will auto update with new content on a regular basis. So what are you waiting for? Next to one-upping PosterBoy and coming up with clever ad takeovers of your own, download the app and (at least virtually) zap those ads!

Noxer’s Book of the Dead


For fans of NYC graffiti, Noxer needs no introduction. Member of XTC, TFP, RIS, DOD… namsayin? For this solo show at Bushwick’s Low Brow Artique, Noxer’s dug deep into his blackbook. As one can expect from a true style originator, Noxer’s line drawings are highly inspirational, drawing from the iconography of ancient Egypt while remaining deeply rooted in NYC street life. Forget what you think you know about Noxer and come prepared to be surprised.
