Signage, Type and Advertising Art by Steve Lambert

Part revelation, part humor, these signs by artist Steve Lambert embrace the tradition of flashy ads with bold typography and demanding lights. For the past nine years he's been making art that comments on advertising and public space.

One exhibit—inspired by signage in LA and New York—highlighted the often exorbitant and empty promises that scream at us from heights and lights of businesses and billboards and how often these claims turn out to be misleading or untrue. Other works point out the bombardment of advertising in our daily lives. The objects themselves are quite fun, and they really make you see the content instead of tuning it out.
