Modern Musicians In Vintage Ads

We can't be alone in getting befuddled by the modern merchandise table. Squeezed into the back of a gig venue are shoes, designer clothing labels, headphones - the odd CD hidden under the artist's latest perfume.

The brand power of modern music is the focus of Parisian artist David Redon's series Ads Libitum.

A blend of contemporary American stars with vintage propaganda and advertising posters, Redon's work pokes at commercial drive of modern music: Kanye West is spliced into J. Howard Miller's "We can do it", while Andre 3000 stars in J M Flagg's "Uncle Sam" poster.

Head to Redon's Tumblr page to see his full series, or pick up a print on his Behance page.
