Hang ‘em High: KATSU Graffiti

Posterized.

On a glowing Sunday morning this March, New Yorkers woke up to a change of scenery. Graffiti artist KATSU replaced phone booth advertisements with posters featuring some unlikely faces of Nike and MoMA. Jay-Z, Morrissey and Chief Wiggum were a few of the unofficial spokespersons causing pedestrians and graffiti admirers to stop, stare and eventually steal the posters from their newfound home. Since that weekend in March, the story of KATSU’s recent conquest continues to snowball, especially now that he is selling signed prints of the fake ads. Hit the jump for snapshots of the KATSU phone booth takeover.
