Andrea Mary Marshall has re-designed the current cigarette warnings and images that Mayor Bloomberg has successfully haunted (and then taxed) you with on the front of cigarette packets. Her warnings now read “OMG,” “Deliver us from evil,” “Have mercy,” “Holy smoke,” and “Forgive us our sins,” instead.
Using Marlboro Red 100 cigarette boxes as her literal canvases, Marshall paints on provocative symbols with acrylic paint in this series titled “Marlboro Mary.”
