Blog Spotting from “Underground Paris”Periodically we like to highlight another blog post that has caught our eye and here is a story about a billboard re-purposer named OX who likes to claim in the name of art, and humor.
“French artist, OX’s, latest ad takeover at Villeneuve-Saint-Georges, in the southeastern suburbs of Paris, is a site – and weather – specific artwork that was planned for this out-of-town location due to OX’s fondness for displaying his artworks backed by barren suburban landscapes, as well as the changing nature of the Parisian billboard space, which makes it ever harder to find suitable billboards to hijack.”

“This latest work incorporates the billboard stand into the work, which OX knots, and camouflages with the blue Paris sky.” Click on UNDERGROUND PARIS to continue reading and to see more photos of OX.
