|I found this fantastic campaign poster at Wooster Collective and was quite taken with it. There's something hip and genuine about it. The fact that the she comes off as a real live human being and seems to be endorsing graffiti is a dramatic departure from U.S. campaign materials. The youthful image, alone, would turn Americans off.|
This caught my eye because of the recent legal battles in NYC between government officials and fashion entrepreneur Mark Echo regarding street art, free speech, and the law against 18-21 year olds carrying markers and spray paint.
For some reason, the ad reminds me of 1980's public service campaigns like RAD (Rockers Against Drugs). Sadly, this dynamic imagery could never get someone into office in this country. I wonder if it'll work in Ukraine?
