As a preamble to TrustoCorp’s recent tongue-in-cheek riffs on reality television and tabloid magazine interventions, the New York-based street art collective had also endowed the Big Apple with a series of their signature signage, as well as a collection of humorous works staged at various subway entrances. Always playful and with a strong message at the core, the installations reaffirm why their unique street art methodology is so effective. Cleverly reclaiming public space otherwise reserved for mundane directional alerts, TrustoCorp has taken it upon themselves […]

Cosmetic retailer Sephora took the initiative to commission a special outdoor installation to occupy their exterior barricade. With the help of David Ellis, Maya Hayuk, Yuri Shimojo and SASU, Sephora created a live motion mural […]
