Artist Commandeers Billboards, Posts Hilarious and Subversive Faux Ads

Beautiful/Decay alerts us to the guerrilla art of Dan Bergeron, otherwise known as fauxreel. His Billbored series hijacks the everyday urban ad spaces that are nearly impossible to avoid. With campaigns like Carl the Plastic Baby, a lovelorn Donald Trump, and cheap lobotomies, Bergeron’s political art attacks the tropes of consumerism in such a subtle way that it’s almost possible for the billboards to be mistaken for serious marketing campaigns. Take a look at his work after the jump.
