Trump Scares As Street Art-Inspired Magazine Covers

The bright pop pallet, the layered stencil flatness, the drips, the overspray.

These are some hallmarks of the modern Street Art style; evocative of free speech, underground activist missives, and pop culture soaked tongue-in-cheek satire.

And here they are popping up again on major magazine covers – still nailing the essence of the message with the simple statement of an icon. One look and you know what it’s saying, and in the case of Trump, the view from Europe scary.

Thought you would like to see these new covers and a few more that are published on NYMag this week; ample evidence that the illustrators among us know how to really go for the popular jugular.
