"After the initial advertising function is over (the concert happens, the sale is over, the business is forgotten, the candidate loses), what is it? What does it become? Garbage? Junk? A rare collectible object? A piece of art? A document of a moment in time? What? A poster is a cultural artifact. I, as a poster designer, create cultural artifacts. These objects are pieces of paper with advertising on them that promote a product. They are the truest art form of an industrial marketing culture. A direct link to our everyday lives. Real folk art."
– Art Chantry, Poster Artist
