For much of the past year (maybe longer) the Vans sneaker brand has been running ads on a street-level billboard outside Spring Street subway station in SoHo, New York City. These ads are part of a larger billboard campaign that involves the old-school skateboard sneaker-maker commisioning artists — some of them street artists — to supply original Vans-inspired imagery for the adverts. Despite the commercial context and aim of the artwork, much of these artists have created amazing work for the campaign.
