Artist Matt Warren of Paper 8 Apparel has transposed 8 of his alt film posters into billboards. They’re currently and strategically scattered around the streets of Los Angeles, and serve as a continuation of his art – in his own words, a way to deconstruct “the cinematic experience in order to critique the methods with which Hollywood formulates stereotypes and builds expectations.”

Like his posters, each billboard is a single frame from the films they represent, distilling the themes, ideas and iconography behind some of our most beloved films. Such a massive undertaking is likely to turn heads, and I love the ambition behind it.

Five billboards are currently up, with 3 more on the slate for the next two weeks. Below are the places which you can view them for yourselves, in addition to Matt’s Instagram.
