New York City pedestrians woke up to a little surprise on the morning of April 5th when they were confronted by a massive billboard that read, 'How are You Feeling?'
Created by Glasgow-based artist David Shrigley, this 25 by 75 foot installation located at west 18th street and 10th avenue whips up the pessimistic side to things with an emotional and cynical Q and A. The billboard conversation includes issues such as paranoia, anxiety and the stress of pressure of trying to conform in terms of societal demands. The use of such a simple question that is able to connect all of contemporary society is brilliant.
This billboard is so lucid yet it also brings people together through shared experiences. Shrigley sure does know how to stir up a self-reflective battle in this creative and witty billboard doodle.
