Artist’s new project is the epitome of old meets new.

Local street artist Christopher Kameck is bringing back the original advertisements of the now abandoned AM&A's department store in downtown Buffalo to try to revive the downtown area.

Kameck uses wheatpastes to put up his own interpretations of vintage catalog images over the windows of the store, where their ads used to hang many years ago. The artist’s intricate work and careful placement of the ads has tricked many of the state’s citizens and journalists into thinking the classic ads have been unveiled after all these years.
