Be it slapping, tagging, or bombing, sticker art is a growing graffiti genre. If you live in a city of a certain size, you’ve probably seen poles, utility boxes, and backs of street signs plastered with stickers. Some promote bands; others promote political causes; and some are simply funny doodles….An 18 July to 23 August 2015 exhibition at The Fridge in Washington, DC showcased over five hundred sticker artists from around the world.
“When they accumulate, stickers form giant collective collages that reclaim urban space for the people.”
