000032 000036I have a thing for signage and billboards.  The simplicity of communicating ideas from these roadside hoardings.  With Elliott Burns work of vacant billboards in Thailand you are left with the sheer beauty of the design themselves sans any commercial context.  Elliott Burns took this series whilst on residency ComPeung Artist Residency.  I came across his work as he has just been accepted to athens Snehta artist residency program in Athens.  It will be interesting to see what he produces whilst there.
