Street artist Adrian Wilson, who goes by @plannedalism on Instagram, confirmed that he was responsible for modifying several subway and street signs on Wednesday.

Wilson modified the 46th Street Station sign in Queens, WNBC reports, so that it would read “46th Joe” instead of “46th Street” as it normally does.

According to Wilson, altering the sign only took around 20 seconds.

The artist also altered the sign for Thompson Street and a "One Way" sign in Manhattan to read "Trump gone st." and "Gone Away."

“It's not complicated artistically — really it is all about the preparation and double checking to get it ready to quickly stick up and look right,” wrote Wilson on an Instagram post explaining the act.

He added, “Anyone could have done it. But I had to do it. For Joe.”
