Thom Thom is not your average street artist. Well firstly he doesnt use paint, stencils, wheatpaste or even yarn. Nope. Not for him. He uses a really sharp Stanley knife.
What he does is scour the city of Paris mutilating billboards in true situationist style. Out of this cutting, slicing, pulling, dissasembling, re – appropriating, he turns an advertisement into a beautiful work of street art.
It is a unique method and as his biog states:
The brands, among which this young expert – today in his 30’s – has been raised, are not the problem itself. The real criticism is against the people’s follower behavior. With that shiny scratch, so far never matched.
