I designed this poster as part of Brandalism's new subvertising campaign targeting HSBC's risible claims to be an ethical bank while investing in fossil fuels, arms companies, and laundering money for the world's worst criminals. See below for more readable poster text. My design went up in Leeds, Sheffield and on the London underground but there's a load of great posters by different artists in the campaign. Across 10 UK cities activists took over 250 billboards and bus stops with satirical HSB
A new poster inspired by a conversation with me mate Amy Smith who's been organising with the London Renters Union. You can download a printable version of the poster from my subvertising page (for non-commercial use only)
All the flags US astronauts planted on the moon are, by now, bleached white by the sun. In hundreds of millions of years, after every trace of civilisation has been wiped from the surface of the earth, these flags will remain on the moon as a final monument to human existence. That and, tragically, two copies of Richard Nixon's autograph.
Corporations and woke ad campaigns will not save us. A corporation legally cannot take a stand for anything except shareholder value. Their campaigns are simply attempts at commodifying and neutering political movements. We can't buy our way to a better world. More subvertising.
If you're still waiting on an Ad Space Hack Pack order please bear with me, it had 400+ orders, far more than I was prepared for, so been working through the backlog. Two post bags gone out this week, waiting on key restock then will post the last 100 envelopes out next week latest. I've taken the listing off my shop because I reached quite a bit past the limit of what I can afford to refund. I may add them again once I clear the backlog. I'll be posting photos as they come in here.
The keys to open bus stops are now available from my website shop, if you use them to put up a black lives matter poster I'll refund the cost of the pack - just email me a photo. You can paint or draw on the back of the original posters you find in the bus stops. Every poster you put up gives you another poster to adjust. Let's cover the streets.
If you can afford to please donate to US protester bail funds and write to your MP! Let's not pretend that racist police violence is just an American
An anti-SUV poster I drew before the lockdown. It seems a lot of people buy SUV's under the impression these giant city-tractors will protect their children on the school-run, but that comes at the cost of pedestrian safety. You're twice as likely to die being hit by an SUV than you are by any other car. Their height also creates a blind spot around the car which has caused countless horrific accidents involving small children. The safety for the occupants of SUVs is also an illusion. Th
The government is more concerned about the safety of stock market investments than it is about the safety of NHS workers and the population of this country. Sources: Government would not pay for NHS pandemic stockpiling Government knew since 2016 UK was unprepared for a pandemic Government knew since January a pandemic was coming
Last week a fake car ad I designed was installed in London as part of Brandalism's #AdBrake project. Massive thanks to Special Patrol Group for the installation and photo! More of my subvertising work here.
I'm closing the Museum of Neoliberalism until further notice to avoid contributing the to coronavirus problem. The government's response has been slow and ineffectual and we can't wait for them to take the lead on this. Take care everyone. We'll reopen once things start to improve.
Just finished this mythologically seditious poster. If you're not familiar with the story, it's said that if the ravens leave the Tower of London the British Empire will fall and the monarchy will collapse. There are a minimum of 6 ravens in the Tower at all times, with one 'spare'. Their wings are clipped to keep them off balance so they can't fly away. I'm doing some limited edition prints, available here.
The Museum of Neoliberalism I co-curated with Gavin Grindon has had a bit more press. I was interviewed for the above article with i-D, also Huck, New Statesman, and as mentioned previously, a great write-up in Prospect and the Financial Times, and a review in Time Out. The museum itself has been busy every weekend since we opened and the response has been fantastic. If you'd like to visit, book free tickets at museumofneoliberalism.com
Extended Bayuex Tapestry: Bloody Sunday. Bloody Sunday was a massacre on 30th January 1972 in Derry, Northern Ireland, when British soldiers from the Parachute Regiment shot 26 unarmed civilians during a civil rights protest march. 14 people died, 7 of them teenagers. Many of the victims were shot while fleeing from the soldiers, and some were shot while trying to help the wounded. Other protesters were injured by shrapnel, rubber bullets or batons, and two were run down by army vehicles. The in
