The Street Artist called The Post Man is delivering celebrities to the city’s streets lately, usually with a cityscape inside of them. The campaign of high saturation portraits are part of one that is often in street art practice: parading, adoring, exulting our pop culture icons, alive or dead. They somehow represent the culture, these reoccurring personas, these musicians, poets, actors, – they have superseded their categories and become part of our common dreams.
Marilyn, Elvis, Amy, Jimi, Nile Rodgers, Philip Seymour Hoffman (as Truman Capote): some of these are part of a golden circle of intermittent images that year after year we all circulate, share, wear, frame, hang on a wall, send in the mail. This time The Post Man is bringing them directly to the streets for your entertainment.
