Camouflaged Contemporary Art

Cayetano Ferrer uses photo stickers to camouflage cardboard boxes and street signs to reveal what these objects ultimately obscure.

Ferrer exposes the relationship between the built and the rebuilt, surface and hidden, as well as the delicate matter of history and memory as the present paves over the resent past in a bid to enrich economies. Ferrer’s work is a gentle push/pull between permanence and obsolescence, inviting consideration of evolution, mutation and modification in our relationship to our immediate environment.”

  1. lol! I have thought about trying it, but never got round to it. I really like the tow zone sign, that's excellent.
