Sticker ‘da big puke’ & Fuxus
16 jul 13
Most texts on stickers are easy to read, since the average artist wants his name to be well known and activists like it if people understand their slogans.
A few days ago in the red-light district of Amsterdam I discovered a sticker which seems to be an exception to this rule.
The picture portrays a puking guy with snot coming out of his nose, plus a ‘vomit-cloud’ consisting of letters that are almost impossible to decipher.
The first five symbols are recognized easily, but the ‘p’ seems to merge with the ‘a’ above.
Then the ‘u’ and ‘k’ and finally the – camouflaged – ‘e’, which fuses with the ‘g’ right next to the mouth of the puking man.
A less simple sticker than I at first glance thought and most appropriately attached to a wall somewhere between the smartshops, bars and coffeeshops.
