Subway advertising always has a great opportunity to be creative. Subways themselves are intricate tunnels with a variety of shapes and turns that can lend to the design itself. I’ve personally seen extremely creative incorporations of designs in stairs, elevators, escalators and subway trains. There is endless opportunities in these tunnels and luckily it’s one of the best places to advertise. One artist noticed the abundance of weaponry in all the subway movie posters and decided to mock them by taking it to its final conclusion.
How creative can you get with Subway movie posters?
Jon Burgerman is a New York-based artist. He found himself surrounded by violent movie posters one day while waiting for the subway. He came up with the genius idea of playing the victim in every violent subway movie poster he could find. Burgerman used one prop, lots of blood! You can see him laying on the ground in a pool of blood, or standing pinned up beside the posters with a tortured look on his face. [ Source]
