Postmodern Town rips off Keith Haring

Here are two paintings by the late American artist Keith Haring:

And here are three billboard advertisements from the real estate development known as Postmodern Town (houxiandai cheng), aka American Rock.

Postmodern Town(houxiandai cheng) is behind New Town (xiandai cheng); get it?

This new ad campaign, shamelessly ripped off from Keith Haring's work, is advertising a new part of the development called 'Rolling Street'. Nice one folks.

Have a look on Danwei here for an example of an earlier, much more original, no make that plain kooky, piece of advertising from American Rock.
