It's a cliched slogan applied to a novel idea -- and the result is a memorable bit of anti-oil spill message (not to mention a surefire PR coup). Artist Anthony Burrill took the ageless adage "Oil & Water Do Not Mix", created a stark design, and used actual oil from the BP Gulf spill to print 200 posters. The following video shows how he did it:

You can get more information and buy one of the limited edition posters at GulfofMexico2010 -- all the proceeds go to the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana.

Despite the similar slogan, these posters are not to be confused with the Oil and Water Don't Mix t-shirts that made the rounds earlier, which were also made to raise money for Gulf Coast causes, or the 'BP Cares' shirts, which weren't.
