Transformed Advertising Posters by Vermibus

 

There’s a pervasive toxicity to billboard ads (or moreso advertising in general). Whether you’re of a different opinion in qualifying advertising as ‘toxic’, it’s undeniable that they fill the visual space around us — on metro walls, sidewalks, screens, and even in some rare and unjustified cases being draped over people’s apartment windows.

I have a feeling Berlin-based artist Vermibus also feels a slight toxicity emanating from advertising posters. In fact, he takes this idea of ads being toxic in a very literal ways: after grabbing the posters from behind their glass frames, he uses chemicals like gasoline, thinner and acetone to mutate the faces and skin of the featured models.
