This Is Not A Brothel: Alternative Version

Following on from the Peter Saville sticker included with our current issue, Jessica Love spotted this alternate version on Cleveland Street, just off Gt Portland Street in London. Not quite as elegant as the Meard St sign but we like the over-excited use of exclamation marks.

Dave Cooper’s take on an otherwise fairly innocuous paint-by-numbers picture
The Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, California has been showing a range of bastardised paint-by-numbers artworks for its latest exhibition, Charity by Numbers.
