Billboard Collages by Thom Thom

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Thom Thom's prefered canvas is the layered billboard. 

The French street artist peels, cuts, and pastes on top of popular advertisements and billboards throughout France -- what he sees as a considerable upgrade. 

His work is temporary by nature, and typically only viewable for a few days until it's covered and pasted over with a new advertisement. 

You can see a brief history of his work on his Flickr page or a video of Thom Thom (aka Hephaestus) in action after the jump.
