Penis, prick, wang, dong, schlong, cock, ding-a-ling, ding-dong, dingus, Johnson, member, trouser snake, pecker, peen, shaft, tally whacker, wiener… Dick. MBP invites you to get a load of New York Dick, graphic designer Galen Smith’s fascinating look at what happens when the audience seizes the chance to turn admen’s monologues into an open discussion.
Subversive and absurd, perverted and playful, New York Dick is the result of Smith’s years of documenting suggestive scribbles on advertisements in the New York City subway. Bursting with over a hundred penetrating photos and cocky captions, it examines not only the horndog nature of the average New Yorker with a Sharpie, but also the effrontery of modern advertising. Whether exposing the ads’ shameless appeals to our basest instincts, or tarnishing airbrushed perfection, the penned penises turn brand-whoring into plain old whoring.
