image: happiness brusselsthe ‘oil & water do not mix’ poster created by british designer anthony burrill may look like another graphic poster, but the unique design is actually printed using spilt oil from the gulf of mexico. the project was organized by happiness brussels, who will donate all proceeds from the posters sold to the coalition to restore coastal louisiana. the posters are being sold for 150 euros each in a limited edition of 200 signed and numbered prints. the oil was picked up on the beaches of grand isle, louisiana and printed using silk-screening at purple monkey design in new orleans, louisiana. the printers simply used the slurry of dirt and oil as they would normal paint. the end result is a rich brown tone that is a direct reminder of the oil spill disaster.
