‘Do This’ — ‘Don’t Do That’ — ‘Over Here! Not Over There!’

This is the language of the Street Sign. Put up by that proverbial Man to tell you how it is or else… Enter TrustoCorp. a New York-based entity that strives to inject a little humour and social commentary into this bland and pervasive space. Next time you’re out and about, try to count how many signs you see…

TRUSTOCORP

Like so many street artists, not much information is available on the artist(s). Here’s what I do know:

– S/he is New York-based and is either an individual or collective
– They have a healthy online presence through the following channels: Flickr ||| Twitter ||| Facebook ||| Website
– While most of their work can be found in NYC, they have been spotted in Michigan and Texas
– They had their debut exhibition: ‘An Overt Display of Mischief and Mayhem’ at the Brooklyn Brothers Gallery
– You can identify their work by spotting their trusty ‘T’ with wings logo, which is ironic in itself depending how much you want to over-think it…
