OCCUPLY OSHAWA brings together local and international sticker artists in a collaborative workshop setting to share & celebrate the inclusive, accessible, non-commercial, do-it-yourself, public nature of this modern folk art.
Sticker art (also known as sticker bombing, sticker slapping, slap tagging, and sticker tagging) is a form of street art in which an image or message is publicly displayed using stickers. From hand-drawn tags on postal labels, to professional prints on adhesive vinyl, this show features work from young children and established graphic designers alike, encompassing a wide variety of identities: Indigenous, POC, LGBT2Q, and more.
We invite the public to join us in designing and producing stickers, while exploring the ethics, history, mechanics and potential of this public art form.
