Streets: TrustoCorp – “Drive Through Liposuction” (Brooklyn)

This summer saw TrustoCorp truly spread their satirical wings with smart and assertive street interventions on both coasts, critiquing the ugliness of pop culture with signature wry wit and multiple campaigns in Los Angeles and New York. In perhaps their most humorous, most direct, and most popular intervention to date, a series of faux trash mags were planted at news stands in and around airports in LA and NYC. Now, as fall is about to set in, the Brooklyn-based collective once again targets vanity and […]

Streets: TrustoCorp (New York) Part 2

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 […]

Contests: TrustoCorp – Tabloid Magazine Interventions

After prominent public interventions in New York, Los Angeles and Miami, you’ve probably got the memo that no place is too far to travel for the urban collective known as TrustoCorp.

Similar to their hilarious NYC rebranding campaign, they’ve gone into magazine stands, bookstores and pharmacies throughout Hollywood, Manhattan, Williamsburg, LAX and JFK to drop copies of these little artistic interventions for the unsuspecting public. No details were spared […]

Streets: TrustoCorp (LA) Part 2

Besides their reality bus stop ad campaign in Los Angeles, TrustoCorp also decided to make their statement on Hollywood. Many of you know that entertainment industry is one of the important attractions of LA and at the center of Tinseltown is it’s famous Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd (also parodied by D*Face a while back). Between Hollywood and Vine, more than 2400 stars have been given along the 15 block length. What you may not know is the actual boulevard runs almost 5 miles […]

Streets: TrustoCorp (LA) Part 1

Judging from the pictures TrustoCorp sent us, the plan was to take their reality show street satires bi-coastal. The only difference was in New York, they hit up pay phone ads (covered) and in Los Angeles, they used bus bench interventions. You can see a peek of part two of the campaign on the west coast on the sidewalk sticking out behind the benches. We’ll have more on that later but for now, check out more pics of the Somali Shore, Real Housewives of Baghdad, […]

Streets: TrustoCorp (New York)

Since the TrustoLand installation and show at Art Basel Week Miami last year, we haven’t had any updates on satiric street pranksters TrustoCorp. As of late though, there has been more activity spotted around New York, but we wanted to first bring your attention to these phone booth interventions featuring parodies of popular reality shows with The Real Housewives of Baghdad seen above and The Real World [North Korea] seen after the jump…

Openings: TrustoCorp – “New Americana” @ Gallery 1988 (LA)

Saturday night at the Los Angeles branch of Gallery 1988, Trustocorp brought his special brand of cynicism to the very city where much of his biting satire finds its target. The show, entitled “New Americana” highlights much of what is wrong with this country through the signature remastered street signs, tongue-in-cheek depictions of what the typical American male and female are comprised of, altered products, and like his show NY – mock carnival games. Also, a souped-up shopping cart in collaboration with speaker company Klipsch […]
