Artist "Vermibus" Dissolves Advertisements to Create His Art

Vermibus' artwork
Here's yet another approach to creativity that is sure to inspire you: this artist (known as Vermibus) removes the poster ads from their cases and dissolves the images with chemicals. The idea of destructive methods as a way of creating art have long been embraced but these pieces take on a slick painterly look that stands on it's own. They look so painterly and gorgeous back in their shiney cases that it's easy to forget that they are created by way of destruction!
