EPOS 257’s Urban Shooting Paintings

EPOS 257’s Urban Shooting Paintings

I just stumbled upon a six month old project by Czech urban art crew EPOS 257 entitled Urban Shooting Paintings!

For the Urban Shooting Paintings EPOS 257, who became popular with the 50 square meters of public space intervention in Prague, uses homemade weapon and ammunition…

The theme – a gesture signalling an attack – remains the same. Its essence, however, relates more to the very roots of guerrilla art, established at the end of the 1960s in the US by activist groups refashioning billboard adverts.I move around with the weapon in the open urban landscape. In my case, it is not an attack on a particular advert but billboard as a medium in general, which in this context represents a painter’s canvas in the urban landscape. (EPOS 257)

If you like the action aspect of the project as I do, make sure to check out EPOS 257’s paintballed billboards as well!
