Above has posted up new video of his “Stealing from the Rich” piece that he did in Lisbon. It appears that he noticed a beggar/homeless person sitting in her usual spot next to an ATM and that must have inspired him to produce this new work. Learn a little more about the globe-trotting “Arrow Man” after the jump.
Some examples seen below of his well known work from The Sign Language Tour when he visited 26 countries in 5 months. (check the video here.) Here’s how he described the work from the tour in this recent interview:
My focus for that tour was to find a situation or atmosphere in the streets and then hang the WORD/PLAY Arrow Mobiles to either comment on or give attention to that specific situation. An easy example would be something like when I hung an arrow in Amsterdam in the Red Light District that had BLOW/JOB stenciled on the arrow, or in Barcelona HACE/SOL (Its sunny in spanish) in a busy intersection in Helsinki HONK/HORN. and on and on. The Arrow mobiles spin constantly so there is this form of silent communication used through movements exactly like SIGN LANGUAGE.
Several more examples of his work.
