Adrian Wilson combines typography and wordplay to anonymously transform New York’s street and subway signage.
Adrian Wilson will describe how has been combining typography and wordplay to anonymously transform New York’s street and subway signage into world famous tributes, from David Bowery to Aretha Franklin Avenue.
Wilson’s father and two older brothers were all renowned graphic designers in Manchester, England. Wilson chose to be a photographer instead and, despite amassing a unique vintage typography collection, spent 50 years avoiding the inevitability of his DNA. Text based street art was his anonymous release and after revealing his identity last year, he is now the most famous graphic designer of the Wilson family.
