Street Artist Hacks Neighborhood Watch Signs By Adding Popular Superheroes
Anonymous artist brings Toronto's faded street signs back to life.
Neighbourhood Watch has long been a way for people to get involved with keeping their streets safe, but now those volunteers are getting a helping hand from superheros and other notable pop culture icons. Created by an artist who uses the pseudonym Andrew Lamb, signs around Toronto have been decorated with characters that include Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, Bruce Lee, and even the unlikely Chief Wiggum.
It all started two years ago, when Lamb noticed the houses printed on the neighborhood watch signs were starting to fade, which he decided to replace. His only criteria is that the characters have to come from his childhood, which for the 30-year-old artist was the 80s, and early 90s. Lamb works openly on the signs during the day, and is even happy to ask passersby for their input.
