Culture: The Marriage Between Art & Advertisement

(Drivebycuriosity) - When you walk on the streets of New York City you can see a legion of advertisements. But you also can discover lots of street art, especially in South Manhattan. Often both are mingled together. Street art can be advertisement, and advertisement can be art.

Some shop owners in Manhattan use the help of street artists to get the attention of passers-by. Others let themselves inspire by the murals & graffiti of the street art subculture. On the other hand some street artists seemed to be influenced by advertisements.

Often you can see walls which are shared by advertisements and street art. Those clusters lead sometimes to weird collages which are an art form by themselves.

Here is a little collection of pictures I recently shot. Enjoy!
