Superheroes and Crime Fighters to Neighborhood Watch Signs

Since 2012 the artist has been wheat-pasting images of superheroes and crime fighters onto Neighborhood Watch signs in Toronto. The 30-year-old artist and fabricator, who makes his living creating puppets, estimates he has put up about 70 such stickers around the city.

In a recent interview with Vice, Lamb explains:

“The project started in the summer of 2012, after noticing the red centre graphic used on old Neighbourhood Watch signs fade away after years of sun exposure—but the black lettering stays perfectly sharp. So there are all these signs that have become little blank canvases framed with a title, but there is no content. So I started wheat-pasting images of fictional super heroes, crime fighters and do-gooders from my childhood on them.”
