The different between to make ADS and ART is here.
Nothing new, of course.
Mimmo Rotella used the same technique already in the 50ths:

from New York Times, USA, 13 January 2006
During the early 60′s, Mr. Rotella was included in many Nouveax Réalistes exhibitions throughout Europe, and in 1964 he was the Italian representative to the Venice Biennale. In 1990, some of his early works were included in the “High and Low” exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and in 1994 he was included in “The Italian Metamorphosis,” a major survey of post-World War II Italian art at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
You can buy a Rotella’s artwork with €57.000,00.
Poster Boy will never have an exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum.
But this is not the point.
The meaning of to make art
is not to do something for an exhibition/museum
is not a business
The meaning of making art is
to seek for the beautiful in the daily things.
Don’t look at Rotella’s or Poster Boy artworks as an object but
look at them as a mediun
this medium (artwork) has this hidden message that is telling to You:
“Open you eyes!
If you change your point of view
You can change the reality…!”
“why should I change my point of view? – is asking who doesn’t have any creativity-
it undoubtedly helps us to… live better…” – I answer-
this is just my point of view.
