LeSportSac Ad

LeSportSac wheatpaste in SoHo, New York City. But if it’s an ad for an established commercial brand is it “street art”? “No,” we say. But is it aesthetically relevent? “Yes.”

The wheatpaste street-art as part of advertising campaign for sporty designer-bag brand LeSportSac in SoHo, New York City. We actually like the design concept, despite the perversely obvious marketing behind this “street art.”

The logotype of sporty designer-bag brand LeSportSac appears on this zipper-themed wheatpaste posters we’ve been seeing lately on street lamp posts around downtown Manhattan. Looks like a case of the increasingly frequent co-opting of the street-art vernacular by marketing and advertising peeps to reach the “the kids.” Interesting effort, but it’s so obvious. Whatevs.
