Les Levine, born in Dublin in 1935, is regarded along with Nam June Paik as a pioneer of media art. Since the early eighties, Levine has waged billboard campaigns in cities throughout the world - including New York, Vienna, and Munich. These pieces use ordinary billboards in heavily populated areas as canvases for Levine's characteristically enigmatic word art, and share an affinity with the work of Barbara Kruger.This book presents a comprehensive photographic survey of Levine's striking billboards, and features an informative text. With its bold images and suggestive phrases, Levine's public art takes aim at advertising culture, and belongs to a tradition which includes Pop Art, propaganda posters, and graphic design.
