As books gradually become less common, supplanted by online media, The Reader reminds people that they still exist and should be read. Done on the sides of buildings and vehicles, his graphic paintings introduce the form of the book into everyday settings. His trademark image is an open book with blank covers next to which he writes, “READ”. In a further comment on the changing nature of information and publishing, he also repurposes newspaper dispensers, painting them and inserting text in their windows. The artist has also exhibited in galleries. In a 2012 exhibition, he arranged a stack of newspaper dispensers on which he painted letters to spell out the words “Read More”. Rather than chiding, his text-based messages engage his viewers in a tactile reading experience similar to the one he promotes.
