Last seen in Paris last month (covered), German adbuster Vermibus is back in Germany where he just wrapped up these new pieces on the streets of Karlsruhe.
Berlin based artist Vermibus regularly collects advertising posters from the streets, using them in his studio as the base material for his work. There, a process of transformation begins. Using solvent, he brushes away the faces and flesh of the models appearing in the posters as well as the brand logos. Once this evolution is complete, he then reintroduces the adverts back into their original context, hijacking the publicity, and its purpose.
