Toronto takeover

Art invades city billboards.

The project called Toronto Street Advertising Takeover (TOSAT) was actually political – a protest by New York-based activist group Public Art Campaign targeting alledgedly illegal billboards. (Pattison told Media in Canada that the billboards were installed legally, but had not yet been switched over to comply with a new harmonized OOH bylaw.) Check out more of the art at
