A Los Angeles-based guerrilla artist known as ObviousPlant has a particularly delightful aesthetic. His work includes innovative flyers, well-crafted ads and price placards that he puts in public spaces where unsuspecting passersby and shoppers become an audience to his artistry.
In one recent "exhibition," for example, he filled a parking garage with signs giving tips on how to prevent vehicular burglary. One sign said: "Lock Your Car. Take Your Keys. Hide Your Belongings. Scatter the scorched bones of your fallen enemies so criminals know what happens when they f*** with you." In yet another, he replaced the heads of characters on bus stop movie posters with those of ducks. Yes, ducks.
In short, coming across his art is half the fun of seeing it.
His flyers poke fun at Los Angeles life and city living, but his price placard changes are even more entertaining. In this latest selection of images, posted on Reddit, he shows a collection of his descriptive signs at a local pet store, turning a rather pedestrian collection of small animals into a menagerie of strange and wonderful beasts — all of which could be purchased for forays into world domination and apartment living.
We present them without further comment. Enjoy.
