TBWA/Chiat/Day Hosts Lars Topelmann Sticker Exhibit

A street art movement blossoms into an art exhibit at a well-known ad agency in Los Angeles.

Feb. 21, 2013 - PRLog -- Los Angeles, CA.

Lars Topelmann (http://larstopelmann.com/), a lifestyle photographer based in Portland who shoots worldwide, is known for capturing the warm, human, and the spontaneous moments that come before his lens. A sticker bearing his profile is part of a street art movement, and now a traveling exhibit of Lars stickers is on view in the lobby of the ad agency TBWA/Chiat/Day in Los Angeles.

"It all started with a shadow of my profile that I shot with my iPhone,' Lars said. I outlined it in Photoshop and thought it would make a cool sticker. I had a bunch printed on vinyl and started handing them out to friends. I asked them to put them in interesting places and email me photos. I also started slapping them around and shooting photos myself."

Visitors to the agency's LA headquarters can enjoy a showing of Lars Stickers as they appear on location in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, the Pacific Northwest, Wisconsin, and elsewhere.

At a time when some professional photographers are shying away from Instagram because they are concerned about how the service will use their images, Lars is embracing Instragram to promote and celebrate the sticker project, putting new images on his feed when he travels for his commercial photography business.  "The main outlet for the Lars Stickers is my Instagram feed. I post daily," he said.

To prepare the exhibit, Topelmann mounted some of his favorite sticker images on wood, using wheat paste, in a nod to street art in which wheat paste is often used to stick the art to the side of a building. The exhibit includes stickers for visitors to take for themselves. Topelmann invites visitors to "check out the photos, take a few stickers and have some fun. Email me the photos to larssticker@gmail.com (mailto:larsticker@gmail.com)."
